Did you know that Professional Development days are contractually 6 hours and 50 minutes long? This is true even if the PD day falls on a Monday or Tuesday when there would be extra time in the schedule already. So, for example, Election Day is coming up on Tuesday, November 5 and since we normally start school at 8:45am we will only stay at work until 3:35pm (instead of our usual 4:30pm). Alternatively, if it falls on a day that normally ends at 3:05pm, we still stay until 3:35pm.
Keep this in mind!
