District Collaboration Days

Late Arrival for Students

The Jenks Public Schools Instructional Calendar includes days on which students arrive at school later than the normal time. These are called District Collaboration Days. This time is set aside for teachers to work together to identify common instructional needs, brainstorming solutions that meet the needs of students at multiple grade levels and in multiple content areas.

The late-start collaboration days provide much needed time for teachers to study student work, discuss proven strategies, and integrate best practices into classroom instruction. Teachers and staff value the six extended collaboration times, enriching both teachers' practices and students’ learning.

Some recent examples of collaboration include:

  1. Analysis of student open response mathematics problem solving
  2. Sharing of best practices in literacy instruction
  3. Discussions among grade levels focused on growing student achievement
  4. Sharing strategies for primary source analysis
  5. Building lessons around text sets
  6. Growing questioning techniques
  7. Developing argumentation strategies across the content areas

 The schedule for this late arrival day is as follows:
