6281 Elementary Certified Staff Preparation Time

The Grand Island Public Schools recognizes the importance of planning and preparation to insure the effective delivery of instruction. As certified staff, it is the responsibility and expectation of each certified staff member to devote the time necessary to prepare fully to deliver a rigorous learning program to every student.

Elementary preparation time is recognized, but not limited to, full and/or partial days without students scheduled into the calendar; early student dismissals; and for elementary classroom teachers, non-student contact time during music and physical education instruction which normally occurs on a daily basis.

In support of the efforts of certified staff, the district will schedule a minimum of 100 hours of elementary preparation time in the school calendar annually.
