There will be no school for students at the Eastern Pulaski School Corporation on Monday, Sept. 24. That day has been set aside for parent/teacher conferences and professional development opportunities.
Superintendent Dr. Robert Klitzman explained that it will be a full day of conferences at the elementary school, but only a half day of conferences at the middle school and high school.
“History has told us at the middle school and high school we don’t need a full day,” explained Klitzman. “Parents are not as keen in coming in for those conferences at the middle school and high school as they are at the elementary school. We’re going to have a half a day for our middle school and high school parents and that will be in the morning.”
Middle school and high school teachers will spend the other half of the day in professional development activities.
“Much of it is centered on the RISE teacher evaluation model and student learning objectives. These are things we need to learn more about and commit to writing. So, no school for our students on the 24th. That will be a day for our teachers to work with parents.”
