Every Wednesday in Seminole County the children in the public schools are let out an hour early. This has been this way since I was in high school, starting back in 1998 and I'm still not sure when this policy began.

WChalk Boardednesday afternoons are the designated days for teachers to plan, organize themselves, have meetings and do grading. An extra hour every week so that they have just a little more time, rather than staying up late on the weekends grading papers or preparing their curriculum. As we expect our students to do well in the school system, the teachers need that extra hour to make sure that things are running well on their end as well.

The students love Wednesdays, because it means that there is just a little less lecture time, a little more time to go play with friends or relax.

The parents, may not be as thrilled about Early Release Wednesdays since it means that they have to make arrangements for pick up and/or supervision for the children.
