During the 2013-2014 school year, Republic School District began investigating the possibility of a weekly release that would provide collaboration time for teachers. At that time, parents and community members indicated support for this initiative, but had a variety of questions about the release time.
Investigation of a weekly release has continued this year as a committee of teachers and administrators have come together to study this possibility. After visiting neighboring districts, reviewing input from staff members and community patrons, and having purposeful conversations among the group; proposals are now ready for feedback. A survey to gather parent input has been created at the below link and will remain open until January 2.
