Minimum Day change from Wednesday to Friday
Dear Superintendent Turnbull,
As Parents from the Soquel Union Education School District it is our desire to support our teachers and acknowledge their professional observations and opinions when it comes to planning and delivering instruction to students.
Many teachers have told us, for a few years now, that they observe and experience that the minimum day on Wednesdays is a disruption to their planning and delivery of instruction. In addition, many families are burdened by the mid-week minimum day, which imposes scheduling challenges. Parents have advocated, alongside their teachers, in support of changing the minimum back to Friday. Parents and teachers asked for the change of the minimum day last year but the outgoing superintendent felt that the new superintendent should make those changes. We support our teachers professional and first-hand experience in planning and teaching our children and ask that you also show your support for their professional needs as well as the needs of the students and families in SUESD by moving the minimum day.
We welcome any questions and feed back and look forward to the opportunity to participate in planning.
