Our school improvement team and MTSS teams have both decided that we need to do more documentation. It’s just too much and it means NOTHING!!!!! Let me teach!!

I got to the point, I stopped doing some of it. I did the big, important stuff, that actually informed my teaching.

Every now and then, some coach would come by asking for my data. I would say “I just don’t have time....you can do it if you really need it.” Lo and behold, , coach would do it for me.

I also worked in a small district.

“What don’t you want me to do in order to do this?”

When I worked in a “needs improvement” school district the union president would always ask this. To be fair the administration was lazy and could create reports on their own but they had teachers do it for them during PLC time which was every single prep.

I LOVE this response!

90% of the documentation we do is senseless anyway.

I'm with Keltikmom and stopped doing it often---I had a similar response with an instructional coach. I was like, "I just don't have the time to do that and actually teach." She laughed and was like,"I'll do it!" I gladly took her up on the offer.
I love SubMan's response too. I'm going to steal it. It's not like I have outrageous amounts of free time. If they want me to not do something else, fine.
