Here's a "group participation vent".

Please respond to this thread with your ratio for staff meetings in your school. The formula for the three-way ratio is as follows:

Useful : Should have been an e-mail : Useless

Mine is...


15 : 50 : 35

Haha that's probably close to what it is for my district. I'll give the benefit of the doubt and say 20 are useful but that also feels like a lot

Plus the 10 minute video that was sent to us explaining why the 60 are helpful and we should be excited to give up a prep period each week for them.

Another thing I love about my P. She will cancel the staff mtg. if she has nothing useful or mandated by the district to say. Happens at least once a year! And she always starts by telling us the time she expects to end the mtg. She wants to go home just as much as the rest of us! LOVE HER!!!

We have "PD" once each month. With the exception of the first in September, I find the time to be wasted. So much could be done with two hours and nada. Nothing ever productive. Ever. It's insulting and demeaning and outrageous. I don't like labeling anyone stupid, but there, I said it. Inane and insipid. It's one of the few reasons I look forward to retirement. And I love teaching.

We also have planning time that meets once each week for each grade level. I have two of these monumental time vacuums each week. That's roughly eighty meeting each year with my colleagues who mostly feel the same. Torture. Terrible.

We had a total of three faculty meeting last year. One on the first day of school, one the last week of school, and one somewhere mid year. Another reason to appreciate my principal. She handles things in email!

Staff Meetings

I don't understand the ratio part, but staff meetings were generally a waste of time when I was teaching. It is one of the reasons I am delighted to be retired.

Our ratio is probably 10 : 80 : 10.

The thing that has made our twice-monthly staff meetings bearable is that our PTA has a committee that provides wonderful snacks at our meetings. We can just happily munch our brownies and chips and dip and pretend we are listening.
