Thornhill minimum days for school wide focus on Science Collaboration:
With the California Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards, our students need more support in Science Literacy. Our staff is excited about our minimum days for collaboration in science. We have 3 days this year that our Thornhill staff has devoted to professional development (last year we had 6 days). These 3 minimum days total 4.5 hours. Our instructional minutes are approved by the district and state to support this focus. Additionally, we value teacher collaboration as the biggest driver for improving the educational outcomes of students.
In order to support teachers with this focus we will have these Fridays as minimum days: November 2, February 1, and May 3.
There are no enrichments classes on these days.
