Important Notice: Flexibility Waiver Proposed
Public Comment Wanted!!!
Proposed Change to the School Instructional Schedule for Academic Programming
20-Day comment period (Ends March 9th):
The Governance Team must vote on all proposal requests before it goes to the District Office and Assistant Superintendent for approval. Once approval is given, the Governance Team must provide the community opportunity to commitment or make suggests to the proposal before any final decisions are made to the proposal. Community comment must be taken into considering during any final revisions and decisions on this proposal.
Crim wishes to have flexibility related to school schedule/professional learning days. Leadership would like to have the third Friday of each month as a school level professional planning day for teachers. The opportunity will provide all teachers to plan outside of their planning periods with other teachers and bring in guests to help teachers explore best practices to enhance learning in the classroom.
Our EOC participation rates and scores have steadily increased since 2015 when we intentionally start having our teachers come in earlier to meet as committees to strategize concerning academics and attendance. We no longer have this additional time in the morning. We want to keep continuous growth in the percentage of students sitting to test and the percentage of students performing at the Developing and Proficient Achievement Levels.
We would like to give teachers time to plan cross-curricular and across grades. Currently, we share the building with another school; therefore, both schools must have time schedules that are accommodating to both programs. Creating this planning space gives us more time for teachers to meet in committees, analyze data, and bring in guests to help teachers explore best practices to enhance learning in the classroom.
How instructional time will be made up:
The school operates on a block schedule (4x4).Instructional Periods are 80 minutes each. As a way to make up for the 320 minutes 18 minutes will be placed back in the schedule ending the instructional day at 4:00 pm, instead of 4:18 pm for the entire school year.
