It is a bit of a sticky situation. If you recieve FFA pay, what does it pay for. When you use extended days, what does that entail? Can you use one for the other? Obvious one, is an extended day taking your livestock team to a workout/event/etc. Or (harder) does FFA pay cover working with a student on their SAE project records? Or is that an extended day?
It is something that is addressed multiple ways in multiple locations. I guess sometimes the local answer is the best answer in most cases, but it would be nice to have some sort of boiler plate that could be used as a starting point for discussion.
I know that is can be a issue of conflict between instructors and administrators, etc. Especially in tight budget times, when days get 'trimmed' - which activities get trimmed?? And were they FFA or extended day activities?
Comments? Love to hear other points of view
I completely agree. I have both a supplemental for FFA events during the school year and extended days which can only be used during the summer. Sometimes I think it would be easier to only have one. While I realize that policies differ from district to district, it would be great to have an answer to use across the board.
To second Matt's comments, philosophically what defines an extended day?
What is an extended day?
Here at my school district, my contract is for 226 days. A normal classroom teacher is on a 187 day contract. I can fulfill my duties during the school year counting working on weekends and days that regular teachers do not work. Also some of my contracted days are to fulfill summertime student activities and workshops and training.
