The official school calendar lists six early-release Wednesdays, which officials say are set aside for “intervention planning for student proficiency” for faculty and staff.
Those early-release Wednesdays will be September 11th… October 16th… November 6th… December 11th… February 5th… and May 7th.
Early-release Wednesdays were weekly last school year, but were discontinued in March.
Superintendent Harvielee Moore said at the time that Wednesday afternoons were used to analyze data, create instructional plans and develop teachers’ skills so they could implement the new Common Core State Standards.
But, she said, it was time to practice using the standards.
While early-release Wednesdays may have helped teachers and school administrators, they were generally disliked by parents and employers, who had a once-weekly disruption in their afternoon schedule.
Again, early-release Wednesdays this school year will be September 11th… October 16th… November 6th… December 11th… February 5th… and May 7th.
