Early release plan for elementary schools

D300 elementary schools are planning to conduct four additional “early release” dates this school year to support school improvement efforts, provide district-wide professional development for faculty, and continue implementing the new Common Core State Standards.  These four dates will be August 30, 2013;  October 31, 2013; February 5, 2014; and April 17, 2014.  Early release days occur on varying days of the week to reduce the impact on teacher planning time and on “specials” programming.

Early releases were chosen as the optimal schedule for this elementary school professional development, rather than “late starts” like the high schools and middle schools employ, largely because elementary school families are already familiar with this type of early release schedule.  The four new early release dates are like those already provided (one per trimester) for teacher processing of report cards.
