I don't know if elective teachers receiving only 1 period off is against any 'law', but I would have the union look into it. In our district if you 'volunteer' to teach more than what the core teachers teach you get compensated for that extra period, but that was negotiated by our union.

Subject: school sched, plan/conf. periods?
Hello and thanks so much to all of you, and Michal and Judy. I'm new to site and it has meant the world to me to have a connection and get feedback. Only my
second year and want to "pay it forward" asap.
I wondered what typical school MS sched. were for some of you. Weve gone to an 8 period day, core teachers with 2 periods off and electives with only 1, 45min
planning. Was at a yearbook training conf. one teacher in our district says that
she thinks that could be against the law or .edu
