Nebo School Dis­trict to change col­lab­o­ra­tion days to Mon­days this fall

Serve Daily - - LIFE EVENTS - By Lana Hiskey

Nebo School Dis­trict’s dis­trict-wide col­lab­o­ra­tion day, which is cur­rently held on Wed­nes­days, will change to Mon­days at the be­gin­ning of the 2016-2017 school year. As has been the case on Wed­nes­days, all stu­dents will be dis­missed 45 min­utes early from school on Mon­days.

Nebo Dis­trict im­ple­mented a highly suc­cess­ful, dis­trict-wide col­lab­o­ra­tion time in 2008. Col­lab­o­ra­tion time is specif­i­cally used for teach­ers to fo­cus on im­proved stu­dent learn­ing and qual­ity in­struc­tion.

The dis­trict-wide col­lab­o­ra­tion pro­vides time for teach­ers to meet with other col­leagues in the same depart­ment or grade level to dis­cuss as­sess­ments, core cur­ricu­lum stan­dards, stu­dent learn­ing, needs for re-teach­ing and en­rich­ing the cur­ricu­lum. It con­tin­ues to be in the best in­ter­est of stu­dents, fam­i­lies and teach­ers to have a con­sis­tent col­lab­o­ra­tion time through­out the dis­trict.

“We know that giv­ing teach­ers time to col­lab­o­rate to­gether about qual­ity in­struc­tional prac­tices, with a fo­cus on in­di­vid­ual stu­dents, is one of the most im­por­tant fac­tors af­fect­ing high stu­dent achieve­ment,” said Nebo Su­per­in­ten­dent Rick Nielsen. “Our col­lab­o­ra­tion time through­out the dis­trict helps us in our goal to meet the aca­demic needs of ev­ery child in ev­ery school.”
