AN ANALYSIS OF THE USE OF TEACHER TIME IN VIRGINIA.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
TO IDENTIFY THE AMOUNTS OF TIME WHICH TEACHERS GIVE TO THEIR INSTRUCTIONAL AND NONINSTRUCTIONAL DUTIES, A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS SENT TO A RANDOM SAMPLE OF 3,594 CLASSROOM TEACHERS, OF WHOM 1,725 RETURNED USABLE REPLIES. MOST SPENT ABOUT 8 TO 9 HOURS A DAY (INCLUDING 2 TO 3 HOURS OUTSIDE OF THE SCHOOL DAY) ON TEACHING, PREPARATION FOR TEACHING, AND EVALUATING PUPILS. CLERICAL DUTIES NOT RELATED TO INSTRUCTION REQUIRED ABOUT 1 HOUR DURING THE SCHOOL DAY. NONINSTRUCTIONAL DUTIES RECURRING DAILY, MONTHLY, PERIODICALLY, AND AT THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR INCLUDE COLLECTING AND ACCOUNTING FOR MONEY (25 HOURS A YEAR), REQUESTING AND ORDERING TEACHING MATERIAL (12 HOURS), AND TAKING INVENTORY (5 HOURS). RECOMMENDATIONS WERE--(1) PROVISION FOR AND UTILIZATION OF CLERICAL ASSISTANTS AND TEACHER AIDES, (2) ESTABLISHMENT OF CENTRALIZED PUPIL ACCOUNTING SYSTEMS, (3) PERIODIC REASSESSMENT OF POLICIES GOVERNING USE OF TEACHER TIME FOR NONINSTRUCTIONAL DUTIES.
