Professional Collaboration Days logo

Teacher professional collaboration time will continue to be on Mondays when it returns for the 2018-19 school year at all MMSD middle and high schools.  What it means is the early release of middle and high school students on most Mondays, in order to coordinate with MMSD elementary schools which have early release every Monday.

Professional collaboration time is based on the long-standing concept that high-quality school districts provide teachers with time for collaboration in order to improve instruction and overall student achievement. Prior to its implementation, middle and high school teachers had minimal time to collaborate.

Bus schedules will be adjusted to accommodate the early release times. After-school opportunities for middle school students during the collaboration times will be provided through MSCR.

Please note that during the 2019-20 school year, middle schools will have early release every Monday, due to changing start times. The dates for early release will for the 2019-20 school year will be posted during second semester.
