School Improvement Mondays - a new Ferndale Public Schools K-12 school improvement initiative - starts today at all of the district schools.
As part of the program, all students across the district will be dismissed 55 minutes early on Mondays.
All teachers, principals and instructional leaders will participate in the initiative, which provides teachers with "structured time to collaborate in rigorous and focused Data Teams meetings to examine student work, review data, determine instructional strategies, and monitor implementation and student progress," according to the latest Ferndale Schools e-newsletter.
The district is offering a variety of options for parents whose children need supervision during the 55-minute early release. Find more information in the Sept. 7 district newsletter.
