We were expected (I.e. required or "volun-told" to do the July 4th parade every year in our community.
We were on the standard teacher contract days, even the head director.
Did the stipend really cover the expected task of assembling, rehearsing and participating in an event in the middle of the summer outside our contract?
Also, all the summer band activities in late July and early August that had to happened before all teachers reported for the first day of in-service (the first day of the school year's contract)?
For me, it's all water under the bridge, but I bet it's still happening.
