CONSIDERATIONS BEFORE TEACHING AT PROVIDENCE
Typical public and private schools have approximately 180 days of school per academic year. In contrast, Providence will have approximately 68 days for elementary and 102 days for secondary courses per academic year. This adds up to approximately 102 hours of instruction per course per academic year.It is imperative for teachers at Providence to be able to effectively use class time to cover material from textbooks or curriculum. Practically, this means that teachers will cover more material in less time, compared to other types of schools. Record keeping includes attendance, lesson plans and assignment sheets. Since parents are partners in education, there will be specific guidelines with regard to communication between parent and teacher. In grades PK-7, the parent acts as “guide for dependent study” providing practice and instruction at home as supplied by teacher.
