             1. How many art classes do you teach?
                7 classes per day Monday through Friday

             2. How much time do you spend with each class?
                42 minutes each

             3. How much planning time do you have per week?
                42 minutes per day (four days per week)

             4. If you have been at your school for multiple
             years, has this schedule changed ?
                I've been in the school for 26 years and we have gone
                from 6 periods per day to 7 periods and now 8 periods.
                (the classes just get shorter)

             5. Do you participate in any other teaching
             responsibilities that are not art related ?
                At present I give up my plan once a week to
                see 10 students in an advisory group. (60 min per week)
                Two years ago I taught reading twice per day and
                last year I taught reading once per day.

             If you answered yes, how much time per week do you
             spend? (60 min per week)

             6. Has your administration discussed the new federal
             policy, NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND, with your faculty?
                Yes, in great detail. Kansas has had to lower it's standards on state tests
                so our students can attempt to meet requirements. The district is making
                several changes to meet the new rules of operating.

             7. Do you think this policy has or will effect your
             art program? How?
                Not at present, but in the future when 100% of our students (2013)
                must meet the test requirements it is bound to be a squeeze.
