The whole situation bothers me for a few reasons. We have money to buy a time clock system for salaried positions, but we have been laying off teachers and staff for the last seven years. We have cut bussing and gone to state minimum standards as far as student contact hours. We are eliminating 15 positions at the end of this school year, 7 of which are teachers! But we have money for a time clock system????? One of the reasons for going to a time clock is because we have a couple a staff members (out of 300) that come in late or leave early. Everyone knows who these people are, but as usual our admin won't speak to those people directly. The admin has a reputation for speaking to everyone instead of confronting the people that are causing the problem. I think it is silly for me to clock in when I spend way more than my contracted time at school. They are not going to pay us overtime so why bother tracking my hours?
