Proposed schedule will be voted on at next school board meeting
The Union County School District is planning a question-and-answer session on the proposed modified calendar this afternoon from 5-6 p.m. in the UCHS cafeteria. At the April school board meeting, Director of Administration Eric Childers presented a second sample modified calendar based on feedback the district received from the first sample calendar. The calendar has school starting August 1 rather than July 20, while still ending at the end of May. Childers said he accomplished that by moving some intersession days to the end of the calendar, slightly extending the summer break. The intersession periods would be a total of 8 school days instead of 10, the first three of which would fall on a Wednesday through Friday and would be dedicated to remediation and enrichment, followed by a full week off. The modified schedule is on the agenda for a vote at Monday’s Union County Board of School Trustees meeting.
