I teach in a k-12 school and am the lone art teacher. The district also has
one pe teacher, & one music teacher
Our schedule starts with our master contract provision that every
elementary teacher (there are 11) needs to have one planning period per
day. We block out three class periods in the secondary schedule. Usually
they are three adjoining periods, not before 10:30 a.m.and not at the end
of the day when students need to be back in their classrooms.
We make a movable chart with a tag for each class that needs to be taught:
kindergarten art, kindergarten music, kindergarten pe. We lay out the
schedule by moving these tags around until every teacher has a time for
planning on each day. One variable is the length of classtime--art for
30-40 min. once a week and music or pe meet twice a week for 20 min. We get
pretty creative sometimes, but it works well. Nancy

Forgive me but---- Doesn't it make you feel great to know that your most
important function is to give "real" teachers a planning period???
