Why Late Start Wednesdays?
Quality teachers are the single greatest determinant of student achievement. Knowing subject matter, understanding how students learn, and practicing effective teaching methods translate into greater support for students. The state of Michigan requires that districts provide at least 30 hours of teacher learning time every year.
To this end, Carman-Ainsworth believes it has a responsibility for ensuring that our teachers are skilled in what they teach and how they teach. Research indicates that the best way to accomplish this is to provide teachers with time to learn during their workday. Late Start Wednesdays provide time for teacher teams to review students tests, examine student work, analyze test data, develop and refine curriculum, and write assessments.
