This proposal would have no impact to current elementary or middle school early releases. The Kennewick School District is committed to ongoing staff training. KSD high schools are seeking to increase teacher training while decreasing the number of Early Release days. Currently, the High Schools have sixteen (16) Early Release Wednesdays for training, dismissing students at 1:10 pm. The proposal is to reduce the number of Early Release days from sixteen (16) to eight (8), dismissing students at 10:30 am. This would be once a month and would increase staff training time from 24 hours to 28 hours per school year and resulting in eight fewer days of disruption. The high schools and School Board would like your input by completing this survey. The survey is on line or you can choose the paper version available from your high school. Please complete the survey by returning the paper copy to your high school or go to to submit.
