From the Loveland School District:
The Loveland School District is committed to providing our teachers and staff with the most effective and efficient opportunities for professional development. While some professional development can take place outside the student day, there are several times a year when additional time is required to provide necessary training for our staff. Since the 2002-03 school year, we have held TLC days, which stands for Together for Loveland’s Children. There are seven TLC days scheduled throughout the school year to allow for professional development time during the school day.
In previous years TLC Days were scheduled as early release time for students. For the 2010-11 school year, the district is keeping the same seven scheduled TLC days, but changing to a delayed start rather than an early release. This will be a "pilot year" as we seek to improve our TLC experience for the staff. As with any schedule change, this will be more convenient for some families and create new challenges for others. While we are still finalizing some of the time details, please plan for a similar schedule to our 90-minute winter weather schedule.
We appreciate the busy schedules of our parents, grandparents, and care-givers and will continue to evaluate our schedule as we seek to create the least disruptions possible. Specific start times will be communicated in the near future. We are also exploring options to provide supervision for children whose parents are unable to adjust their work schedule to accommodate this change.
