School Year Calendar

At the March 10 meeting of the School Board we received a presentation on our school calendars.  We had two discussions.  The first discussion was related to our plans to make up days missed this year due to inclement weather.  The second discussion was related to school holidays and how we observe them.  

I would like your opinion on these important issues.

What is your preference in making up snow days?

At the March 10 meeting of the School Board we received a presentation on options to make-up the missed days of school due to inclement weather. Because we missed over 10 days of school we are able to take advantage of state code that enables us to make up less than the total number of days missed. Staff presented us with a couple of options that we will need to decide which method to apply in order to make up the time we do have to make up. Each year the make up plan for missed days is printed on the back of the School Year Calendar. By the guidance provided on this year's calendar we would eliminate all remaining early release days, professional work days and extend the school year two days making June 15 and 16 school days. However with the relief provided by state code we have some options to make up the time. We can either eliminate all early release days (including June 10, 11, 12 - Middle and High School exam days) or we could extend the school day by 10 minutes starting April 13 until the end of the year. Ten minutes does not sound like much, but we must think about the ramifications to transportation and extracurricular activities.
Add 10 minutes to the beginning of the school day.
Add 10 minutes to the end of the school day.
Eliminate early release days including June 10, 11 and 12.
Stick with the plan printed on the calendar extending the school year through June 16.
