Bethel schools look to add professional development time for teachers

More professional development time is being built into the Bethel school district calendar.  Superintendent Dr Christine Carver says the amount of change this particular year and the ability to learn while implementing these complex coronavirus-related systems requires time for professional learning and planning.  She says the time that teachers currently have is not adequate to keep up with the pace of expectations. Carver is asking that the Bethel Board of Education consider adjustments in the calendar to a "conference schedule" early dismissal, giving teachers two opportunities for extra planning a month.  This will bolster professional learning days. The proposed additional early release dates are all Wednesdays so if the district goes back to a hybrid schedule, it will have no effect on family planning.  The proposed dates are 11/11/20; 12/2/20 & 12/16/20; 1/6/2021 & 1/20/21; 2/3/21 & 2/24/21; 3/3/21 & 3/17/21 and 4/7/21.
