The county-wide day of learning is October 14, 2019.
APS educators choose sessions that are aligned with the key areas of focus within Arlington Public Schools. Sessions offered are three-hour sessions in the morning from 8:30-11:30 or as all-day sessions from 8:30-3:30 at various locations. For those not in all-day sessions, in the afternoon educators gather in their building with their collaborative learning team to share learning and plan from 12:30-3:30 with lunch “on your own” from 11:30-12:30. Please read the descriptions carefully as some sessions are specific to certain groups/subject areas. Many of these sessions will also be repeated on the countywide early release days 12/11/19 and 2/12/20. Please bring a laptop or iPad to access session materials.
Assistants are invited to select from a range of offerings and may consider attending a session alongside teachers with whom they work. Instructional Assistants are also encouraged to check in with their supervisor if they are looking for recommendations on which sessions to attend or they may also work to complete their Safe Schools Training.
