The Port Angeles School District Board of Directors established the Collaborative Time Task Force on June 23, 2003. The purposes of the task force are (a) to study relevant data and comparative statistics; (b) to research program operations and student performance improvements in districts where collaborative time has occurred; (c) to develop a recommendation regarding collaborative time at elementary schools; and (d) to report on evidence of the impact of collaborative time use at middle schools.
Formation of the task force was a result of the board’s desire to standardize late start times across the district as a budget saving measure. The board received reports on the research regarding teacher collaborative time, and heard community comments on collaborative time and the option of Wednesday late start.
The task force was balanced with representation from the school board, building administrators, certificated and classified employees, parents, and community representatives. Task force members will present their final report to the Board of Directors on Monday, February 9, 2004.
