At the beginning of each school year, teachers spend the first week in staff development workshops.
Traditionally, teachers are given one day during this week to set up their classroom in preparation for 1st day of school and the entire year. Last year the principal did not give us time to prepare our classrooms during the week. Consequently, teachers had to spend time on Saturday, on their own time, to prepare.
As a consequence, many teachers were not prepared and had to continue their preparation during classroom time, conference time, lunch time, and after school. The principals at the other schools in the district did give their teachers time to prepare for school.
We, the undersigned, request an entire day during staff development week to prepare for our classrooms and call it, "Classroom Preparation Day."
The Support Classroom Preparation Day petition to School Administration was written by Socorro Brito and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
