7502 Duty-Free Time For Teachers

The board recognizes that teachers need time to plan activities and lessons for students. The school improvement plan will include a plan to provide duty-free instructional planning time for teachers, with a goal of providing an average of at least five hours of planning time per week. Pursuant to state law, the board will grant duty-free instructional planning time for full-time assigned classroom teachers to the maximum extent that (1) the safety and proper supervision of students is ensured and (2) the funds are provided by the General Assembly for this purpose.

Each school improvement plan will include a plan to provide a duty-free lunch period for teachers on a daily basis or as otherwise approved by the school improvement team. Any plan approved by the school improvement team must consider available resources and must ensure that students are appropriately supervised.
