Calendar Survey Points to the Need for Adjustments This School Year
Last month, South Washington County Schools (SoWashco Schools) conducted a survey of families, staff and students (grades 6-12) about their ideal school-year calendar. The input gathered was intended to inform future calendars starting with 2022-23.
The results of the open question “Do you have any additional information that you would like to share with SoWashCo Schools for the calendar committee to consider when creating future school calendars?” pointed to action steps that need to be taken for this school year.
The SoWashCo Schools calendar committee is currently working on adjustments to the current school calendar. The tentative changes would include some flexible learning days for students and planning time for staff to address student needs. The adjustments being proposed would affect the current calendar beginning in January through June 2022.
A final proposal will be shared with staff and families before it goes to the school board for final approval during its regular business meeting on Thursday, Dec. 16.
