Results of the survey will be presented to school board members at a called board meeting Dec. 9, as they contemplate proposed calendars for the next two years.

On Nov. 21, interim Superintendent Steve Smith and Deputy Superintendent of Student Affairs Ed Judie Jr. presented board members with several variations of proposed calendars for 2014-2015 and 2015-2016. The variations included options with and without furloughs, as well as differences in the number of student and teacher days.

Board members and staff have been asked to take time to review the calendars and voice their concerns, with the updated, proposed two-year calendars being brought back for a vote at the board’s regular session Dec. 19.
