Longer school days approved for turnaround schools

Students and teachers in the 12 turnaround schools will have their school day extended by an hour due to a recent decision by a joint resolution committee.

Half of that extra time will be devoted to classroom instruction. The other half hour will be for teacher development, prep time, and tutoring.

The West Zone turnaround schools include the Agassiz, Trotter, and John F. Kennedy.
