Professional Growth Friday's - Teacher Collaboration

The Value of Teacher Collaboration
Highlights from around the state regarding the value of teacher collaboration and its connection to student achievement.  Many districts, including Marysville, use the early release Friday's for this purpose.
 Click on the icon to take a brief survey.  The Washington State legislature recently passed a new law, Senate Bill 6552, authorizing the State Board of Education to develop rules to implement a 24 credit diploma, starting with the graduating class of 2019.  Within this law, it declares that the state may no longer require students to complete a culminating project as a condition for graduation, beginning with the class of 2015.  However, school districts may choose to continue to require a senior project as part of district requirements.

The Marysville School District is conducting a brief survey of students, staff, parents and community members regarding the graduation policy for Culminating Projects as they decide whether to keep it as a district requirement for graduation.  For more information on our current district graduation requirements, please visit our policies and procedures, Policy No. 2410.  

Calendars for School Years 2014-15 and 2015-16

The Marysville School District and the Marysville Education Association recognizes the need to provide calendar information for the school year as early as possible.  While we have shared a "perpetual" calendar earlier this summer, that calendar did not include early release and non-school days.  What parents and staff can count on for the upcoming year is that every Friday will be an early release day for students and professional development for staff (with a few non-school days also on Friday's). The calendar is the Parent Calendar which provides additional detail.  

DRAFT Perpetual Calendar approved by the Board of Director's for school year 2015-2016.

The district's goal was to provide staff, parents and community members with the draft calendar to assist in future planning.  These calendars include the following dates:

  • Start and end of school
  • Winter and Spring breaks
  • Holidays
  • Non-school days in October and February
