Public meeting today will address topic of alternative school calendars


The Summit School District Board of Education will host a work session today from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the School District Board room at the Central Office in Frisco to ask questions and explore research about student learning as it relates to the school calendar. A retired administrator from Cherry Creek school district and a principal of a Douglas County elementary school will be present to discuss their experiences working with a year-round calendar. Board members invite the public to come learn and ask questions as well. As Board members are in the very early stages of exploring this topic, public input will be limited at this particular forum in order to stay on task of gathering information. Please be assured that while the Board looks at these different calendar options, members will continue to carefully review the impacts any calendar might have on the community. Furthermore, any major decisions on changes in the school calendar would only be made after numerous opportunities for parent and community input.Alternative School Calendars: Looking Ahead to the Future• When: Today, 6:30-8:30 p.m.• Where: Summit School District Central Office, 150 School Road in Frisco (Next to Summit Middle School)
