First Day of School?

i Aug 20th No Comments by

August 20th will be the first day of school a year from today if Calendar 2.0 is adopted. If the voice of the community is not heard, our children, teachers, and staff will be required to spend extra weeks in hot classrooms and curtail their summer enrichment, employment, and rejuvenation plans to participate in an education reform designed without community input and with outcome goals unsupported by educational research. Getting the word out, sharing the research, and voicing the community’s concerns will be critical in the coming months. To echo the slogan of other state SOS coalitions and national traditional calendar advocates: School is cool, but not in August!
