RE: plan time

Hello all, I teach Middle School Art with about 600 students and we have
taught with Block schedule for the last year, going into our second. My
classes are 90 min. long and I teach 3 classes a day. We get a planning hour
of 90 min. every other day and a team planning, 90 min. on the other day.
So, total planning a week totals 450. Yikes, I have it better then I
thought. Low pay but plenty of time to grade and plan. When I taught
elementary and middle I had under 200 min. a week of planning time and had
to teach more students plus was teaching 8 preps a week.

This thread has brought to my attention how different states,
administrations have alloted for plan time. I thought it might me
interesting to see just what this is for each of
us. For example, we are allotted 200 min per week in my district in
Some other schools, on this list, I have read at 240. I would like to
read more about each persons allotted plan time, as I feel this is
critical to a quality program- especially in art. Anyone else want to
contribute? Betsy
