Professional collaboration time logo

Teacher professional collaboration time will continue to be on Mondays when it returns for the 2016-17 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.

Professional collaboration time (PCT) will be on Mondays this year in order to coordinate with MMSD elementary schools which have early release on 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.

Early release dates (all Mondays) for the 2016-17 year for all middle and high schools:
