DLB Work Load: Required Plans and Reports


The Board shall limit redundant requests for information and the number and length of written reports that a classroom teacher is required to prepare.

A classroom teacher may not be required to prepare any written information other than:

  1. Any report concerning the health, safety, or welfare of a student;
  2. A report of a student’s grade on an assignment or examination;
  3. A report of a student’s academic progress in a class or course;
  4. A report of a student’s grades at the end of each grade reporting period;
  5. A textbook report;
  6. A unit or weekly lesson plan that outlines, in a brief and general manner, the information to be presented during each period at the secondary level or in each subject or topic at the elementary level;
  7. An attendance report;
  8. Any report required for accreditation review;
  9. Any information required by a district that relates to a complaint, grievance, or actual or potential litigation and that requires the classroom teacher’s involvement; or
  10. Any information specifically required by law, rule, or regulation.

The School may collect essential information, in addition to the information specified above, from a classroom teacher on agreement between the classroom teacher and the School.


The Board shall review paperwork requirements imposed on classroom teachers and transfer to existing noninstructional staff a reporting task that can reasonably be accomplished by that staff. [See Policy BAA]
