NOTE: If something else fits better with the goal of that particular flex day, then the planners should be able to change the schedule.  For example, if there's an outside speaker that could be followed with dept mtgs in the am, or if district wide faculty for a program can meet, or perhaps some other types of workshops that preclude dept or program meetings.
