Professional Learning Community: Friday Early Release
Every Friday when children leave school early at 12:55 or 1:40 p.m., teachers collaborate with one another in grade level teams to plan instructional experiences for students. During this time, teachers work on the following:
- Write weekly lesson plans
- Create curriculum maps
- Design common assessments
- Plan interventions and enrichment for small groups and individuals
- Share instructional strategies
Providing time for planning provides consistency across classrooms and throughout the school.
