E a s t e r n   U p d a t e - Monday, April 23, 2007

Early Dismissal Day (Article 36.01 d) v) – Friday, April 27, 2007
Early dismissal days are teacher directed
, not principal-directed. These two days were negotiated to help bring prep and planning time to an equivalent of 200 minutes/week for elementary teachers. Principals again have been scheduling meetings/ in-services for Friday, even though the day is for teachers to do their own “classroom-related activities”(see p.36 PPD Day Guidelines b). Each individual teacher has the right to determine whether or not they accept the “invitation” to attend meetings.
