Re: 5A/6A Head Director
I think you misunderstood.. often the staff is teaching classes and working with the kids. No one is letting them just do whatever.
I agreed with everything "Depends" said until the last sentence of the first paragraph. I don't want to get into a philosophical debate here, but I think our first priority should always be to the students. I get what you're saying about the reward of getting the work done; but we have our students in classes a limited amount of time. If there is a class going on, no one is sitting at their desk doing administrative work; that what conference period and before/after school are for.
I also don't think living in the Band Hall is going to make your program better, though. You have to find a balance. If you aren't getting what you need done in an appropriate amount of time, maybe you aren't being efficient enough. This is when delegation is important.
It really does depend on the program. As "Depends" said, hire people that will fill in the gaps.
