My principal is trying to get me out of a fixed schedule.  Right now, I am
planning time for 3 grades.  After *my* planning and lunch (which I change
around to accommodate as many teachers as possible), we are flexible for
about 2 hours in the day.  Of course, teachers are complaining of lack of
access.  They want me to be fixed all day, so everyone is guaranteed a
time.  I'm shooting for completely flex. How do I allay the fears that one
or two teachers will hog all the slots?  When we were flex in the past, we
put the schedule out the week before, one week at a time.  That was several
years ago. I need a positive way to present an open schedule so that they
all see the benefit.  THanks for the help.

"It is more than ironic that school districts are willing to spend hundreds
of thousands of dollars on reading programs and staff development which
*have had limited success* in boosting test scores, but are unwilling to
invest in school library programs that show direct correlations <>  to student success."
~ Douglas Achterman,  2008 Study of California School Libraries
