At a special meeting of the Board of Education this evening a motion was passed to adopt a local school calendar for the 2011-12 school year. The calendar, based on a similar one used this year, includes 10 school closure days. The closure days include 5 days added to spring break resulting in a two-week spring break and 5 days added elswhere through the year.
The local calendar was originally proposed on April 11th and feedback was received from partner groups and the community. The adoption of the calendar represents savings of approximately $1.2M for next year.
