3024: Teachers' Rights, Responsibilities and Duties
All certificated employees shall assume the duties and responsibilities assigned by the administrator or designee. Teachers’ professional responsibilities involve considerably more than merely classroom instruction. They include, but are not limited to, study and research to keep abreast of new knowledge and instructional techniques; assessment of students’ work; record-keeping; lesson planning and preparation; conferences with students, parents and administrators; in-service meetings; and supervision of pupils outside the classroom.
Teachers must be in their classrooms or assigned areas as instructed by the administrator or designee. All duty time is necessary for educational planning, preparation, and conferences with students, parents and faculty members.
Teachers who serve on the instructional or faculty of a school district shall follow the policies, rules, regulations and directives of the school district and its administrators to the extent they do not conflict with the policies, rules, regulations and directives of the educational service unit and its administration.
All teachers must maintain a standard of dress, personal appearance, general decorum, moral standards and behavior that reflects their professional status in the community.
