All about Other Professional Work (OPW)
Other Professional Work (OPW), is self-directed by the teacher or paraprofessional. Unless modified via the SBO process, OPW time is scheduled for 35 minutes on Tuesdays after dismissal and Parent Engagement.
If your administration is dictating your OPW time there is an avenue for a resolution.
Your Chapter Leader will discuss the issue with your principal either through an email, a one-on-one conversation or at their school-based consultation.
After addressing the violation, and filing an Operational Complaint, the principal will have 5 school days to remedy the issue. If unresolved, it will escalate to the District level.
