Early release out for year

The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District announced six early release days during the 2013-2014 school year. School day will end 90 minutes early in order for teachers and instructional support staff to collaborate.

The early release date will be: Sept. 18, Oct. 30, Nov. 20, Jan. 22, Feb. 26 and April 16.

According to a press release, an ongoing challenge in schools is to find time to adequately review data and then plan improvement efforts. While negotiated agreement does give teachers a small amount of time to work after school, all teachers and instructional support staff will benefit from more collaboration time to support their instructional practices. This additional time supports the districts five year strategic plan goals in the areas of Academic Success and Organizational Excellence.

Six times throughout the academic year, on a Wednesday, schools will meet the minimum day, leaving teachers with approximately 90 minutes of additional time.
