Minimum Day Professional Development Information

Minimum Day Professional Development Information

 

October 5, 2018

 

Dear Parents,

The Wyckoff School District is very proud of its teaching staff.  We hire strong candidates, nurture a culture of collaboration, growth, and high expectations, and educate and train all staff to keep them abreast of the latest research and practices in curriculum, pedagogy, and issues affecting education. We do not use packaged or “canned” programs in our classrooms. Our success and our students’ growth depend on the quality of the teacher in every classroom. To continue this mindset and approach requires time, energy, and funding.

Last spring, based on feedback from parent and staff surveys, the Wyckoff Board of Education approved the 2018-19 student calendar that included five professional development minimum days for all staff. The first one will occur this coming Monday, October 8, 2018.  Future minimum days for professional development are as follows:

December 3, 2018,    January 21, 2019,  March 11, 2019, May 6, 2019

Minimum Day Hours

  • AM PreK         8:50 am - 10:25 am
  • PM PreK         11:25 am - 1:00 pm

If you have any questions about the minimum professional days, please contact me or your child’s principal.

 

Sincerely,

 

Richard D. Kuder, Ed.D.
