Professional staff members will be expected to assume reasonable duties over and above their
regular teaching responsibilities. Activities and services which make minor demands on the
teacher's time shall be part of each teacher's basic assignment. Teachers shall take turns selling
tickets to extracurricular events and shall supervise students at those activities, when assigned by
the principal. Schedules of supervision, sponsorships and activities will be assembled by the
building principals. Administrators will strive to equalize those duties among teachers.
All elementary teachers have the responsibility for supervision of pupils in and around the
buildings. Teachers frequently have sponsorships of groups on an elementary level. Committee
membership is a frequent responsibility for a teacher and often an important means of growth.
There are committees for curriculum development and for other purposes.
In addition to regular class and conference period assignments, secondary teachers have
responsibility for other duties in relation to the operation of the school. Principals shall assign
these equitably. They include student group sponsorships, faculty committee assignments,
chaperoning social activities and trips, work in curriculum development, and others.
Each teacher should expect and plan to take one or more such assignments during the year.
All teachers are asked to attend P.T.O. meetings, and to remain to visit with parents for a
reasonable amount of time following the meeting.
Teachers who are regularly assigned to duties which require extra time or responsibilities over and
above their basic contractual obligations will receive extra compensation in accordance with an
extra duty allowance salary schedule established annually by the Board.
Extra duty assignments which make major demands on a teacher's time shall be compensated in
accordance with an extra-duty allowance salary schedule established annually by the Board. Extra
duties shall be defined as those duties and responsibilities in conjunction with but not a part of the
regular teaching assignment but considered as a part of the teaching act. These duties are not
considered subject to the provisions of the Teacher Tenure Act. Faculty members to be appointed
to extra-duty positions will be recommended by the superintendent and approved by the Board.
Appointees will be issued a contract for the terms of their extra-duty employment stating the
particular assignment, its duration and the compensation to be paid. Most stipends will be paid
on an annual or seasonal basis, although certain assignments not related to the teaching act,
performed at irregular or infrequent intervals, may be paid at an hourly rate.
