Q10 – What will the length of a school day be? Will there be any options for families who need before and after school care?
Well, data tells us that additional time is needed in the school year to ensure that all students are provided the opportunity to achieve appropriate growth. To that end, Pullman Community Montessori, will propose an extended school year and also an extended school day. The school day will start at 8:30 each morning and end at 4:30. This will allow us to provide students with a high-quality, whole-child education tending to both their academic needs and executive functioning and social-emotional needs. We are working with the Y of the Palouse to develop a before and after school care program to accommodate families who need this service. To that end the school will open its doors at 7:30 and close at 5:45 with the Y supporting services outside of our normal school day.

We are sorry you were not able to attend our event and share your thoughts. This survey represents the combined feedback from both community sessions. We would like to get your opinions on which elements are the most important and see if you have further input to provide. This information will guide us in future exploration and planning as we continue to prepare to open Pullman's first public Montessori school.
