Sept. 12 is Bend-La Pine Schools first School Improvement Wednesday.
This early release schedule allows time for teachers and staff for collaboration and educational growth. When teachers have the chance to discuss effective teaching methods, cooperatively design teaching materials and coach one another, our schools make significant improvements.
Providing consistent school improvement time is advantageous for students as it results in fewer interruptions of the school year.
Elementary — 2 p.m.
Middle and High — 1 p.m.
Three Rivers — 1:30 p.m.
