A: It depends on the specific details of the teacher's employment contract, school policies, and state regulations. Generally, teachers are expected to fulfill the responsibilities outlined in their contracts, but if there are significant deviations from the agreed-upon terms, it may raise legal and contractual concerns. It's recommended to review your employment contract, consult with the school administration, and, if necessary, seek guidance from an education law attorney to assess the situation and determine the appropriate course of action.
