Early Release
  • What Are Early Release Days? Scholars have a shortened schedule and go home early. In the remaining time, teachers and staff engage in cross-district professional development. 

    Why Do We Have Early Release Days?  “We have heard from our teachers that there is a need to have more time to plan for targeted instruction for our kids.  We want our teachers to have time to meet, collaborate with teachers across the district, and create future instruction that is based on classroom data that will enhance the learning experience for all.  We see this small sacrifice of time away from teaching and learning dedicated to rigorous planning will pay off for our scholars in the end.” – C.E.O. David Hardy, Jr.
