Calendar 2.0 Information:
There are currently conversations taking place around changing the school calendar for the 2014-2015 school year.  This work was started by a task force of regional superintendents in 2010 who were asked to look at the current calendar, review alternative models and recommend a new calendar.  In short, the proposed new school calendar would maintain the same number of student days, would increase the number of breaks throughout the year, would begin school a week earlier in August and end a week later in June.  

We have a link on our website that contains more information from the regional superintendents about Calendar 2.0 and their rationale and research about the reasons for the proposed change.
Below is a link to the Calendar 2.0 Blog

Superintendents from Addison, Chittenden, Franklin, and Grand Isle Counties will be voting on the regional calendar sometime in the spring of 2014.  If you have input you can speak directly to your local superintendent and/or attend one of the regional meetings.  No final decisions have been made and your input is welcome.

There will be regional forums in October at the following locations:
October 2, 6:30pm at Essex High School
October 3, 6:30pm at BFA St. Albans, Cafetera
October 9, 6:30pm at Burlington High School
