A committee of school district teachers and staff is developing its proposal for the school calendar for 2007-8 and 2008-9, and there is a meeting today at 25 Churchill at 3 p.m. This committee has no parent representation and the public is not allowed to participate in the meeting....just observe!
This is the same process that gave us the current calendar, which starts school on Aug. 21 and gave us a ski week.
There will apparently be community meetings in September and October to get input on whatever the committee decides, but for anyone with concerns about the school calendar it might be smart to attend this afternoon's meeting.
What do people prefer for the school calendar? I'd prefer a later start to school and no ski week, but wonder how others feel...
