Re: Pay Your Dues
What you choose to do while not under contract is your problem. As a MS director my contract ended the first week of June and I didn't start back until the second week of August. So about 8 weeks over the summer plus Thanksgiving (1), Christmas (2), and Spring Break (1). That's 12 weeks where I was not required to answer emails, phone calls, or work on lesson plans. Add in the other federal holidays and you have 13 plus weeks that you are not contracted to work.
As a HS director I had a few less weeks off but was also paid for the days I was working so not relevant to the discussion.
