Nebo School District to change collaboration days to Mondays this fall
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.”
