Early Release Wednesdays are Back at Manatee County Schools

Manatee County SchoolsThe early release Wednesdays that got cancelled last year are back…well sort of. If you are a student in the Manatee County School District, then you probably looked forward to the early release Wednesdays every week that were implemented a few years back. On the other hand if you were a working parent at the time it may have caused some challenges.

Well, now the Manatee County School Board is bringing them back, but instead of every week, the early release will be every month–the first one coming up on Sept. 4th. If you are in elementary school, you will be able to go home at 1:15pm, 2:10pm for middle schools, and 12:30pm for high school.

The school board says that they originally came up with early release Wednesdays to try to increase student test scores, but the idea failed and they pulled the plug. Now the school board wants to try again, but they don’t want this to inconvenience parents. The board hopes this new idea of early release every month will be a nice compromise that will allow additional planning time for teachers without inconveniencing parents too much.

The dates for the upcoming releases are:
September 4, 2013
October 2, 2013
November 6, 2013
December 4, 2013
February 5, 2014
March 5, 2014
May 7, 2014

Be sure to mark your calendars!
