In-Service/Staff Development Days/Early Release
Teaching is a dynamic profession, therefore, teachers need to constantly receive in-service training to ensure that they are current and on the cutting edge of what is happening in the field of education. DoDEA incorporates in-service and staff development days throughout the school year. These days are over and above the 180 instructional days in the school calendar. Training may be scheduled for a full day or on Early Release days. This time will give the teachers a block of time to meet and work on school improvement goals and other staff development training. Parents are always welcome and invited to attend these staff development/in-service training sessions. These dates are noted on the school calendar as soon as planned and throughout the year in our school newsletters. At various times throughout the year, additional staff development/in-service days may be scheduled. We will notify parents of these dates as they are announced through our school newsletter.
