C13 - Daily Hours for Teachers and Students for School Year 2018-19
In order for all Clay County schools to become break-the-mold schools and for the district to restore it's "A" status, Common Planning Time is fundamental to the effort. This is the practice of adults meeting together on a frequent and regular basis to review and craft plans to improve the academic engagement and achievement of the students they serve.
Common Planning, when well implemented, provides structured time during the school day for teachers to share instructional challenges, and best practices, as well as participate in sustained development activities.
The use of Common Planning Time to lift instruction is a major departure from traditional routines where teachers typically are assigned individual time during the school day to prepare for their classes, and therefore meet with the peers only infrequently in subject-area department or schoolwide faculty meetings. Although research continues to be critical of teacher isolation, and links collaboration among adults in schools with higher levels of teacher commitment, satisfaction, efficacy, and improved student outcomes, Common Planning time has remained a marginal practice. Common Planning time has the potential to advance three processes viewed as central to creating effective learning environments for students:
Clay County School District has not fully reached the potential Common Planning time holds for becoming a collaborative, high-functioning, learning organization. Common Planning time is now labeled on the School Hours document utilized by all schools.
