Superintendent Alan T. Lee wrote a letter to Dr. Joseph Morton, State Superintendent of Education March 7, 2011. “The Baldwin County Public School System (BCPSS) would like to include early dismissal days in the calendar for the following purposes:
- Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) High Schools That Work/Making Middle Grades Work professional development; and
- Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) professional development.
He also said, “Given the possibility of losing professional development days from the school calendar due to funding shortfalls, the requested early release days will help ensure skillful implementation of SREB and PBIS. If approved, the early release days (3 hours each day) will be October 7, 2011, November 10, 211, January 27, 2012, and March 9, 2012. Principals will be required to submit their agendas prior to each professional development day based on identified objectives.”
