The early start is a small part of the total program: (1) Schedule more high impact time prior to high stakes assessment; (2) Commit to becoming Pro- fessional Learning Com- munities (PLC); and (3) To develop a Teacher Induc- tion program for first- and second-year teachers. In regard to the early start, or the nine days prior to the test, research concluded that additional days of instruction prior to testing does improve achievement on standard- ized tests. Currently, as a group, the FLY is affecting 15,000 students, 1,300 teachers and 2,100 total staff. A survey each year has been completed and Superintendent Notes By Bruce Houck RTR Schools Superintendent found that parents, staff and students support the early start. The survey found that the calendar creates a less stressful holiday break at the end of the first semester. It also improved educational quality not having home- work and projects over break. The survey showed that school days are more productive by ending after state tests and provides benefits for college classes in the high school since the calendars closely resemble each other. Each school district will have one member on the FLY Professional Develop- ment Team who makes decisions on the speak- ers and different sessions. This group will meet a number of times per year to prepare for the group of 1,400 teachers. Since the school districts are able to pool their dollars together the speakers for the train- ing are nationally known speakers in the area of education. Our Commitment Is To Keep You Adlve.
