Students to switch to half-day Wednesdays so teachers have time for PLCs

The four public schools in Morgan County, Utah, will have half-day sessions every Wednesday next year. The school board recently voted that the high school and middle school will have late starts and the elementary schools will have early dismissals.

Deanne Winterton, Standard Examiner correspondent, reports that the move makes way for implementation of Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) as well as simplified scheduling.

Both elementary schools currently have an early Thursday release, while the middle school has a late Wednesday start. The high school does not have either right now.
