Student Early Release Days / Calendar

 

School districts dedicated to creating Professional Learning Communities (PLC’s) provide opportunities for faculty and staff to work together as a team. Teams review curriculum, discuss instructional strategies, review and create common assessments, analyze data and review individual student progress to determine if any additional support is necessary.

Student Early Release days were designed to support student learning:

By providing time for teachers to review student data on a regular basis.

To make adjustments to teaching in order to increase student achievements.

By allowing teachers to provide best practice teaching every day in every classroom.

To improve the delivery to students through reviewing teaching research.

Students will release two (2) hours early.  Times will vary by building, see calendar below.
