Denton School Board Approves 2023 24 Calendar, Shifts Half Days For Teacher Development
The biggest change? District leaders decided to move half a day dedicated to vocational education from Wednesday to Friday.
During the 18-day period, which falls on Wednesday this year, there have been protests by some parents. Students and families — especially those not old enough to drive — said they had to leave work to pick up students during the day or provide transportation and childcare for them.
Regional Superintendent of Academic Programs Charlene Parham and Assistant Superintendent of Academic Programs Susanna O’Barra presented a workshop on the final draft of the 2023-24 calendar.

Parham and O’Bara lead a committee to create a calendar that conforms to state laws governing instructional time. The calendar must include 187 teacher training contract days and provide 75,600 instructional minute hours over 180 instructional days. Texas public school calendars are required to include make-up days if schools are closed due to severe weather.
When students enter the new school year in 2023; Teachers are students’ scores; It will take 12 days to meet and collaborate on successes and challenges. The teachers asked the district to evaluate the number of hours and other teachers at other grade levels who could better serve students and provide more continuity in their instruction.
“If you remember, I’ve been here for two years and I gave a big reason why it should be on Wednesday,” O’Barra said. “I’m not going to change my mind on that. But we’re going to have to rethink it because we’re getting some feedback. And it’s partly feedback from parents, but also partly from our teachers, our administrators.”

O’Barra, With Parham and a committee of about 15 middle and high school participants, parents lobbied the district to schedule a half-day Wednesday for two main reasons. Upper grades spend Friday afternoons and evenings with games, They are used in competitions and concerts. Shorter Thursdays and more absences.
“Unfortunately, I’ve had a lot of parents say, ‘It’s really hard for me to pick up my child, I don’t want them to go to school for a day,’ so I leave them at home. . . . ‘No, you can’t do that. Please don’t.’
Price asked O’Barra and Parham about the district’s absentee rates at professional development days this school year.

“Our half on Wednesday was a bit short, which is a concern,” O’Barra said. “After we considered all the variables, That was one of the things that Ms. Parham and I talked about. That doesn’t reduce many percentage points. But it went down a bit. We are monitoring that data.
“If they’re there on Friday before the long weekend, we’re hoping it won’t be more of a problem. We’ll have to live to see that, that’s one of our concerns.”
School attendance rates are important because some financial allocations in Texas public schools are based on average daily attendance.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made many families realize that in-person tutoring is not the only option for their students, and families are using online resources to teach their students while schools are closed. If there is a significant impact on Friday half attendance, Obar said the district will give the district a reduced attendance waiver to help the district financially.
Place 1 Trustee Barbara Burns Friday afternoon and evening athletics; Arts and extra responsibilities teachers are worried about losing support.
“One of the primary reasons for doing these half days is to give teachers time to do better instruction,” Burns said. “So it’s interesting to see how many teachers are suffering because they can’t participate in this important professional development.”

O’Bara said the district is working to support professional development as part of the learning culture at Denton campuses.
“We continue to educate our campus administrators and faculty on how to best use this time. Because what’s important to us is the time to collaborate. That’s what the [professional education community] is all about,” O’Bara said. “It doesn’t work in isolation. It improves teaching practice.”
Families will notice a slight change in the 2023-24 calendar. The school week is shorter and the holidays are the same. Half-day development blocks are similarly scheduled, with six development blocks falling in 2023 and the remaining six in 2024.
