The district I work in is getting ready to make major programming cuts due to a 
failed referendum. We are getting ready to present before the school board' 
instruction committee and are looking for information on time spent on the 
administrative tasks. One of the district administrators shared with the school 
board in a pie chart that 63% of the elementary library media specialists time is 
unscheduled. The administrator took a look at the minimum amount of time the 
elementary lms spend with classes. Our elementary lms work in a flexible schedule, 
and they all work with classes above and beyond the district set minimums. The 
board is wondering why we need full time lms when the other specials, art, music 
and physical education, are given contracts on a percentage basis. We have been 
working on educating the board and district administrators about our role. Does 
anyone know if there is a time study of some kind that would off set information 
that was previously shared with the board? We are scheduled to meet with the board 
committee this coming Monday.
Thank you,
