Longer School Day

Multiple considerations

1. Physical education must be offered daily. Every homeroom should have PE once a day. It would replace the need for recess. Health Education should be mandated as part of the PE teachers' responsibilities.

2. Art/Music/Foreign language should be required for every child K-8 at every school. Art can be for 1 semester, Music can be another semester and foreign language should be all year long.

3. An assistant principal/dean of students should be given to every elementary school.

4. Extended care provisions for before and after

5. Teachers/staff should have a minimum of 70 minutes collaboration time/preparation time per day without students

6. Teachers/staff get 30 minutes uninterrupted to eat lunch.

7. All meetings are held through webinars to save time, gas, parking, etc.
