This morning, second period, the three APs came in to observe. As per the principal’s directives, I let the class go independent of the bell. She’d had a big meeting with the staff about how we’re creating a bell-less school, so that we don’t have a “school culture” where students wait until the late bell and show up late.
She came into my class and reprimanded me for not waiting until the bell. I told her I was confused but after talking to some staff, it seems like she couldn’t get the building’s bells to sync and reprogram.
Bells back on. It’s like that huge, impactful meeting she’d had with us took place in the Twilight Zone. Directives discarded, down into the memory hole.
