RE: Early Release Day Forum
Date: January 6, 2017

Greetings and best wishes to everyone as we welcome in 2017. This communication is a reminder and invitation for all interested families to join us at Suffield High School for a forum regarding the district’s exploration of a weekly one hour early release concept for the 2017-2018 school year. The panel discussion will take place in the media center at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, January 9, 2017. Our panel, including parent, teacher, and administrator perspectives will review the rationale for exploring the early release day concept as well as emerging solutions to increase teacher collaboration time for Suffield educators.

The format of the forum will be a panel presentation by our early release committee members. Panel topics, in addition to discussing the need for increased job embedded collaboration time, will include common themes and questions from our previous parent focus groups. During the presentation, audience members will be encouraged to submit written comments and questions that will be presented to panel members during the presentation.

After this forum, a written report will be submitted to the Board of Education, which will include recommendations/options for increasing teacher collaboration time within the 2017-2018 school calendar.
