Banking of Instructional Minutes (Banking Day)
One day a week (Wednesdays), additional instructional minutes are “banked” to create a common planning time for staff. Students arrive at school one hour later, at 9:10am, on Wednesdays. Instructional minutes remain the same, according to California State mandates. During this hour the staff is involved in faculty meetings, professional development, as well as grade level and other staff meetings.
