In the original post that he referenced to, he stated that the principal has be trying to remove this teacher, only to be blocked by the HR department for...reasons. So the principal, while trying to rectify the situation, has their hands tied by the bureaucracy above him. |
Also, even if the OP is not the DFA, it is in his best interest to be aware of the situation. The other classroom may be across the hall from the band hall, or nearby. Whatever is going on in that room can possibly bleed into the band hall, and cause the OP problems more directly. Also, he stated that the principal (or the APs) was never contacted by the teacher, or even aware that the teacher was absent or late until after the fact. Is sounds like at the very least the OP was on hallway duty, and in a position to note what was going on with the unattended classroom.
I was reading all of this last night at home and I have to wonder, how do you have time to get involved with all of this and document all of this and why? Are you the department head for fine arts? If so, that answers my question. If not, why? I get that this person is an incompetent, unprofessional teacher but, why would you get so deeply involved in all of this if you are not the department head? I have no assistant and personally just don't have the time to follow another teacher around to worry about their classes and duties. IMO, that's why we have a principal and that's why he gets paid more than me. I'm just curious because you are pretty detailed in this thread.
