While often times school districts will impose extra duties that the collective whole of the staff feels are positive and necessary, even though they go beyond the working contract, a school cannot require you to work beyond what the binding contract agreement states. If you refuse to work beyond the contract, they also cannot discriminate against you in evaluation, promotion or assignment.
Check your contract. This should be stipulated in some way in that contract. My teaching contract states what number of hours I am to work each week based on a five day week. Also, this seems like an administrative duty. Does your contract require that you do café duties as well? If so, that may be the precedent under which you may be required to stay late. If you do not know, ask your union rep. They should know and be able to file a grievance if this mandate does violate your contract.
If you are in a charter school or a private school without a contract, just speak to your administrator in a professional manner and try to reach an accord.
I think a few things need to be cleared up before an answer can be posed. The first would be that if the school is asking teachers or teaching staff to remain present until all students have left, this is not entirely unreasonable. Part of most teachers' or staff responsibilities is to help with dismissal or arrival procedures and remain until the business is done. Keeping teachers for an extra ten or fifteen minutes is not considered abusive or encroaching because of the need to secure the building after student departure. If teachers are being asked to serve as guards or patrolling forces, perhaps the argument can be made that this might trade off with their focus on instruction, which is the primary reason they are at the school. Schools do have some latitude in the imposition of "extra duties" on teachers that might veer outside of simply instructing students. However, if these duties are a bit too much outside of the domain of actually teaching, perhaps a persuasive argument can be made that they would be doing students and teachers a disservice in that the quality of instruction might suffer.
