School starts September 1 with all new bell schedules

e-Connections Post

To improve our service to families and students, SCUSD is giving teachers dedicated time every week to get together and plan. Research shows that educators who collaboratively discuss and plan their work are more effective in the classroom. SCUSD is proud to bring this successful strategy to the community.

To accommodate this collaborative time, we are adjusting fall bell schedules. Students will be released early on Thursdays, including the first day of school on September 1.

All other days, students will stay in school a little longer than last year. Please contact your child’s school for an exact bell schedule.

Weekly teacher planning sessions are vital to helping our schools maximize their full potential to support students. Teachers will be better supported, too, and students will benefit from this collective approach to learning.
