Early Release Days in the 2014-2015 School Year

Six times in the new school year, KPBSD school days will end ninety minutes early for students, in order for teachers and instructional support staff to collaborate.

On a mix of Wednesday and Friday, six times throughout the academic year, students will meet the minimum day requirement, leaving teachers with approximately ninety minutes of additional time to work on improvement strategies. The length of the school day on the following six days will be reduced by ninety minutes, for a total of nine hours during the 2014-2015 school year. On these early release dates, school will end ninety minutes (1.5 hours) earlier. Bus transportation will be adjusted by ninety minutes.

Additional information:

  • Schools will have further details based on school schedules
  • Transportation: our transportation contract is by the day and allows us to modify the time and number of routes. Thus, the change for the one day per month will not cause an increase in transportation costs, and time is simply adjusted by the 1.5 hours
  • The school calendar clearly notes the minimum days so you can plan accordingly
  • The school district will review the efficiency and effectiveness of the early release opportunities mid-year and at the end of year
