Please be aware that to support student learning due to lost instructional time during the earthquake closure, it has been proposed that the days associated with the February Parent-Teacher Conferences will be utilized as student instructional days. Half days originally scheduled for February 20, 21, and 22 will become regular full day instructional time for students. The originally planned early release days for students, late evenings for teachers, and in-service on February 22 will not occur to allow for full-day student instructional time. Conferences will not take place; therefore, please make sure you are checking your student's progress in Parent Connect as well as communicating with their teacher about any questions or concerns.
The Anchorage School District School Board still has to vote on the final approval for this schedule change on January 22; however, we wanted parents to be aware of the proposal so that they can plan to have their students in school all day from February 19 - 22. We will send an update once the School Board votes.
