Late-start days are a new addition to our district calendar. There are several reasons for the late-start days, one of which is teacher inservice. Late start days will allow teachers who teach the same grade level to come together and see what is working for them (collaboration time). Elementary teachers will be participating in vigorous professional development implementing enVision math curriculum. enVision is newly adopted and has countless hours of instructional DVDs that teachers will be reviewing. Teachers will also be updating the AIMS web interface, which is an assessment program to monitor student academic growth. Junior high and high school teachers will be reviewing best instructional practices, working on curriculum, writing finals, analyzing student data with a focus on modifying and improving instruction based on student needs. The late start days will also provide an opportunity for the district to utilize late starts because of inclement weather. There are a few times each year when there is a huge difference in the temperature and/or the road conditions for a bus leaving at 6:30 in the morning compared to leaving at 8:30.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Will students be allowed in the building at 7:30 AM as usual on late start days?
