    Longer day
    By 2teach4ver

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Our district has had a longer school day this year. We go from 8:10-3:30 M-Th and 8:10-2:00 on Fridays for professional development. It is not worth it! The kids are done by 2:30 and that last hour is spent keeping them entertained. I've tried doing social studies or science then, but they are too wiggly and their brains are full! (I teach 1st).

    This was an idea our superintendent had that would help our test scores - it didn't work - so starting in January we are going to a 7:55-2:25 day. (Closer to our times last year). The teachers, parents, and even kids can't wait to have more time with their families!
