Teachers will work in pairs or triad learning partnerships. Each participant will have access to 1.0 days of release time to be used as teams/members see fit. Participants may use any combination or whole or part days, however the minimum time a TTOC can be booked is 0.5 per day. 

Learning partnerships can apply for more release time if necessary. Funding may also be available to help with the procurement of professional learning resources.
