    I have a meeting every day before or after school (and some double-booked!) for the next two weeks.

    I have the usual various staff meetings and IEPS... but way more than normal parent conferences.

    Anyone else in the same boat?

    Two hands up and waving here. Today was day 5 of school and I've had 5 formal meeting so far. I have 4 in-person and 2 phone meetings scheduled for the rest of this week and 10 booked already for next week. No wonder we don't have time to get everything done!

    Lord have Mercy . . . YES!! I was actually supposed to be in two places at once today. I am head of the AP dept and we had an emergency meeting today afterschool at the same time I was supposed to be meeting with my Jr student council members to discuss homecoming float :eek: My students left me a sweet note; we were here, you were not, you didn't forget us did you :love: your Jrs.

    I am feeling so overwhelmed

    No, thank goodness. I'm sorry for all of you who are running around like crazy with all those meetings. I have only had our regular, weekly staff meetings. I am not hoping for more.

    I'm thankful that my new school doesn't have a ton of meetings. At my old school, we used to meet for various things AT LEAST 3 - 4 times a week. The only meeting that might be a small pain is SIT -- old school we met during the school day and got substitute coverage. At my new school, SIT meetings are AFTER SCHOOL, which stinks because they tend to run over.

    Out of 82 students, I have 25 this year with IEPs. We have several who will require CSTs in the near future. Guess I'm in your club.
