School board reviewing early dismissal Friday

Livingstone Range School Division will undertake a process to review the co-ordinated school day which includes early dismissal on Fridays.
Livingstone Range assistant to the superintendent Stephen Harris outlined the three-phase process.
The first phase is background in which parents and staff will be reminded why the co-ordinated school day was adopted.
“We want to have a focused conversation,” Harris said.
Between now and the end of January that will take place.
The second phase is data. School staff will be asked:

  1. If instructional time effectiveness has improved with the change.
  2. Has it allowed for greater flexibility in professional development.
  3. Has attendance changed.
  4. Have school hours been affected.
  5. Are schools taking advantage of the change with initiatives such as video-conference and sharing teachers.
  6. Have school sports teams been leaving early to attend tournaments.
  7. The results of these conversations will also be shared with school councils and discussed.

The third phase is parent feedback, where parents will be asked if the co-ordinated school day and early dismissal Fridays have affected their families, and what the benefits and drawbacks are.
The co-ordinated school day will also be a topic of the regional school council.
