What will a Full Day look like? 

A 7-hour school day in elementary schools and a 7.5-hour day in high schools will benefit students by providing the opportunity to:

 

  • Spend more time on core academic subjects including math, science, social studies.
  • Work on literacy skills and provide reading intervention for struggling students.
  • Broaden enrichment opportunities including physical education, art, music, library time.
  • Give students an adequate mid-day lunch and recess period so that they can recharge.
  • Provide students with individualized interventions to help improve skills in math, science and core subjects as well as behavioral interventions and supplemental work for gifted students.
  • Provide teachers with more prep time and professional development each week.
