The School Board approved a
change in the current year's calendar Dec. 14 that shortens the school year by
one day for elementary and middle school students. Ending the school year on
June 9 instead of June 10 will give teachers the additional time many will need
to close the year out and prepare for transition to new schools for next year.
As the result of an earlier School Board decision to close eight schools at the
end of the year, large numbers of staff moves will occur before the next year.
Teachers not affected by moves will assist their colleagues in packing and
other preparations for the moves.
