Just received a PTA bulletin about a meeting this Wednesday of the "school calendar committee", which will be discussing when school should start and whether there should be a "ski week" for the 2007-8 and 2008-9 school years.
It will be held at district headquarters at 25 Churchill from 3-5 p.m. but the public will not be allowed to speak. The meeting is part of the union contract negotiations.

If you attend, please post some observations about what happened.
My opinion: summer is too short and I hope we can go back to a later start and no ski week. And how about less time taken off for standardized testing too?!
