Our school currently has an early release every Friday at 2:00. Students leave with the bell, while teachers and administrators stay until 3:15 to collaborate. This began in 2008 and has evolved and improved since that time. I am interested in any other schools who do something similar to this. Our Other Core teachers meet w/other PE teachers throughout the district. Fine Arts team sometimes meets as a whole, other times they break into Elementary & Secndary teams. At other times, the entire faculty may be needed together. The same is true for grade levels; they meet weekly and discuss student data, better strategies, wht is working and what is not. Can anyone refer me to some strong articles or research in this area? Jenny
