Four and a Half Day School Week

Found in: routines & procedures

I taught second grade in a school with a modified schedule. By adding only 20 minutes a day to Monday through Thursday, we were able to send the students home at noon on Friday. The teachers then had the rest of the day for planning. As you can imagine, there was a GREAT deal of discussion and input from the teachers, parents and community. The biggest issue was childcare for working parents. We had after-school child care at the school, which helped with that issue. The vast majority (teachers and parents) grew to love it. Doctor appointments could be scheduled during that time, and it provided a head start to vacations as well. I would gladly go back to that arrangement.
