All Region 5 Public Schools will open on a two-hour delayed opening schedule on Friday, Oct. 18.
The faculty and administration at Amity Regional High School, Amity Middle School Orange, and Amity Middle School Bethany will be using the delayed opening to conduct in-service workshops on the development of student learning objectives.
Student learning objectives are a centerpiece of new state-mandated teacher and principal evaluation guidelines. The faculty and administration need this time in order to complete training and analysis of student performance data necessary to draft student learning objectives.
School will begin at 9:30 a.m. on Friday.
