  1. Board Directive
    It is the feeling of the Board that all teachers should be provided a duty-free lunch period and directs the District Administration to administer the following policy.
  2. Administrative Policy
    The Administration shall operate the following duty-free lunch policy:

    1. A thirty (30)-minute duty-free lunch period should be provided for each elementary teacher, and any schedule developed for adequate inside supervision should be designed with this point in mind.
    2. Teachers shall be scheduled for student supervision as little as possible when meeting local needs. However, schedules to provide adequate supervision of students when inclement weather necessitates keeping them inside during lunch, shall be designed and implemented by each school administration and staff.
    3. Rotational duties shall be equitable among all licensed personnel.
    4. Teachers shall not be assigned outside duty during the noon hour. Such duties will continue to be handled by the aides.
