The schedule for rotation of duty assignments may be for less than annual duration.

Whenever a building principal decides to assign these instructional activities, equal consideration shall be given to all requests. Examples of these activities are: remedial work, enrichment, tutoring, mini-courses, working with new teachers, departmental projects approved by the building principal, and developing instructional materials.
