Good Question: Do traveling teachers (those who go between buildings) do hall duty before or after school? The answer is no – traveling teachers are not required to do before or after school duties, as is laid out in our contract in Article X, Section 11, Subdivision 2 (page 16 in the purple contract book). As always, if you are being asked to do something that goes against our agreement, give us a call at 763-421-9110.
