The purpose of this study was to determine why teachers at a mid-Atlantic, urban high school do not regularly perform their important extra duty assignments. The instrument used in this study was a survey that was adapted from an existing survey in order to determine reasons why these duties are not performed on a regular basis. Thirty of one-hundred faculty members were surveyed for this study, and the selected faculty members were selected to replicate as close as possible the overall composition of the school (race, gender, subject area, teaching experience, etc). Research should continue in this area because these duties are increasingly important to a safe, effective school setting.
