The Board of Education discussed proposed changes to the 2010-11 calendar at their regular meeting on Tuesday, May 26th, with a second reading and vote scheduled for Tuesday, June 9th.
The proposed changes are designed to end the first semester before the Winter Break, which would mean that the school year would start earlier in August and end at the end of May.
1st semester starts Monday, August 16 and ends Friday, December 17.
2nd semester starts Monday, January 3 and ends Friday, May 27.
See Draft A (29kb,pdf)
There would be a year before the proposed changes go into effect, allowing the district time to assure that summer programming remains intact. If you wish to speak to the BOE about the proposal, please call the Board office at 241-6493. If you wish to email your comments, feel free to contact Deena Zacharin, Director of the Office of School/Family Partnership at firstname.lastname@example.org.
