We found out last week that next year they are cutting our weekly planning time down by 30 minutes. I already struggle with getting what I need done in the time that I have...and now we are doing new assessments that will take even more time. I have NO idea how I will get it all done!!

Most days I'll have 30 minutes of planning...but when you factor in the time it takes to get my kids down to their special, use the bathroom, and walk back to pick them up, there is maybe 20 minutes of actual planning time. I guess I should be thankful they are giving us any time, right?!

Wow! That stinks! Did your union have a say in the decision? We get 42 minutes a day, but even with that, I still take home at least an hour of work a night. Most days, my planning time is spent doing other things...including covering other classes when there aren't enough subs! Hopefully, you'll be able to accomplish what you want in the time you have!

That hurts to lose a big chunk of time like that. We only get 40 min and it flies by. I bate when they cancel it because there is no sub for pe or music.

We don't have contracts anymore. There is a "suggested" amount of prep time in our handbooks, but our union doesn't really have any say at all with the new laws.

They cut ours two years ago. We used to have prep every day, now we only have it every other day. They say they're giving it back next year!
