Reasons for revised Calendar

Calendar Revisions

The original 16-17 calendar had 1075 hours. Five less than the 1080, which is required. Over the course of the year, we have additional hours to make up from the following events.

  • December 23 – students came to school for 50 minutes. The day was originally a 1:30 dismissal, which is a 4 hour and 50 minute day. The net result is an additional 4 hours to make up.
  •  January 16 – school was cancelled, resulting in an additional 6 hours and 20 minutes to make up.
  • January 10 – we had a 10:10 start, but dismissed at 3:00. This resulted in 30 minutes to make up.
  •  January 17 - we had a 10:10 start, but dismissed at 3:00. This resulted in 30 minutes to make up.

The total hours to make up are: 16 hours 20 minutes.

The reason the updated calendar reduces teacher in-service days at the end of the year from 2 to 1 is the December 23 day of instruction was only 50 minutes. It counts as a contract day for teachers. So, in order to make up the hours of instruction, it was necessary to use an in-service day at the end of the year for instruction.

Also, Board policy permits seniors to not have to make up snow days, so they are able to end on May 12th as originally planned.

 

17-18 board approved calendar with the following notes:

 
1. Early out Professional Development days will move from Tuesdays to Wednesdays to allow teachers to meet with teachers from surrounding schools that have Wednesday PD days and allow teachers to not have to leave early to due athletic contests.
 
2. The change from days to hours provides more flexibility while maintaining the same number of instructional days.
 
3. The school day at the Middle School/High School building will be extended by 10 minutes, and the school day will go from 8:10am-3:10pm.
