Teacher Flex Days

Providing teachers with the opportunity to study, practice, and receive critical feedback requires prioritizing professional learning. We value our teachers and the work they do with the students of Shelby County Schools each day, and because of this, we want to allocate teachers time during their regularly contracted hours to prioritize professional learning. The 2020-2021 school calendar reflects this commitment to professional learning.

Through a combination of full and half day professional learning opportunities, we ensure teachers have dedicated time within their day to gain the knowledge and skills they need to improve student outcomes. Half days ensure minimal disruption to student learning and allow teachers to have access to critical information during the school day, rather than having to stay late at their school, or drive to another location in SCS and stay late. We recognize teachers have children, families, and obligations that extend well beyond their time in front our students, and we want to prioritize professional learning while also respecting our teachers’ time
