The District Calendar Committee reviewed the calendars on February 6, 2018. Their suggestions are as follows:
- Revision: Move the Friday, February 8, 2019, Professional Learning Day to Monday, February 4, 2019, to coincide with the day after Super Bowl Sunday. Continue this in the 2019-2020 calendar.
- Investigate the following:
- Adding minutes to each school day in order to avoid losing Professional Learning Days due to weather closures. Some public schools may be doing this now.
- Using cyber-school-days in place of snow days and whether the state would approve them as such. The one-to-one initiative would make the technology available to students. Some private and charter schools do this now.
The Board of Education approved the proposed 2018-19 & 2019-20 calendars at the February 26, 2018, Board meeting to be posted for review and comment. Please email any comments or concerns to Mary An Scarbrough at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
