Hoffman, P. (2017, October 04). Great School Culture: It Starts With the Principal.

This past week marked the opening of 2015/16 academic year here in Los Angeles. On Monday, teachers throughout the Los Angeles Unified School District reported to their school sites. This first day is traditionally known as a “Pupil Free Day.” Teachers spend three hours in professional development and then three hours are allotted for planning and preparation. During the professional development portion of the day most teachers receive a talk from their principal regarding the upcoming school year.
