I don’t know where to post this so I am going to post it in a number of places.
My district just initiated a “Work Made for Hire” policy which is common in the industrial sector, but I have never seen it in education before. Here are a couple of questions I have for all of you.
1. Does your district or have you ever heard of a district having a policy like this?
2. How does that affect us as music educators?
– As ours reads we cannot do anything within our field outside school for pay. To me that says composing, teaching private lessons, coaching/conducting musical groups, playing gigs, anything that has any relation to our job.
I have not had a chance to talk to my Association representative about this yet, but am I just blowing this all out of proportion or is there a legitimate concern? As I see it this effects anybody teaching any artistic class in school i.e. art, dance, music. . .
