Beaverton Schools plan Wednesday Early Release for Teacher Collaboration & Professional Development beginning Sept. 2017
The Beaverton School District will be establishing a Wednesday 90-minute early release schedule beginning next fall (2017) for teacher collaboration and professional development. The District is working this school year to plan an effective implementation.
Collaboration is an ongoing process of small teams of teachers working together to know each student’s strengths and challenges, and to meet students’ specific learning needs, while strengthening the teacher’s own teaching practices. Collaboration time gives teachers a more comprehensive view of the child and increases teacher effectiveness, making it essential for student success.
Over the course of the next three years, nine additional student contact days will be added to the District calendar. More information here:
