Early Release Fridays


Spokane Public Schools students will be dismissed one hour and fifteen minutes early on 12 Fridays starting this school year to allow teachers time to work with their peers around student improvement.

It is an educational best practice to provide specific structured time built in to the work day for teachers and other certificated staff to collaborate. For these new professional peer learning days, teachers will be meeting in pairs or groups to work on professional practices to improve student learning. 

Release times on the following Fridays will be 1:45 p.m. for elementary, 2:15 p.m. for middle school and 1:15 p.m. for high school:
