Teal Day Guidance: Formerly Known as Blue/Green Days

Blue/Green non-student contact days have been re-branded as Teal Days for 2017-18 to provide schools more flexibility in how they support teachers with learning opportunities and data analysis as part of their strategic PL plan.

The three central-pull days for 2017-18 are August 15, October 26 and February 2.  In order to minimize impact on students, central departments will strive to provide learning opportunities on these three days to support curriculum adoptions, content and pedagogy best practices, state mandate requirements and support for data driven decision making.

Attendance is at school leader discretion, unless required due to flexibility decisions.  With that in mind, school leaders, please support your teachers’ attendance and avoid scheduling whole-school learning opportunities that would present conflicts.
