I think we really got taken advantage of this year. Regular teachers went back to school on Monday. Monday and Tuesday were workdays and students were back at school on Wednesday. We were in various meetings much of Monday and Tuesday and actually only got a grand total of 3 hours and 50 minutes to work on getting ready for school. Our contract day is 8:00 to 3:30 and most teachers were there last week, this week early, and late this week just to try to get ready for the kids. How many days do you get (and get paid for) to prepare for the return of students? How much of that time is actually classroom work time?
