Teachers get to work on first late start Wednesday

Clover Park School District (CPSD) had its first late start Wednesday of the school year Sept. 20. Teachers across the district used the late start hour to participate in classroom management training.

Educators discussed how maintaining a warm, caring learning environment with high behavior expectations leads to high student achievement.

At Idlewild Elementary School, principal Jim Pfeiffer presented on how teachers can best manage student behavior with a warm and supportive demeanor. The presentation included video illustrations, and teachers were also given time to read and discuss lessons from the Teach like a Champion 2.0 text.

Most Wednesdays this school year are late start Wednesdays.
