School Board Considers Calendar Change; If Approved, District 186 Schools Would Start Late One Day Per Week


The Springfield school board will consider a change to next year's school calendar that calls for school to start an hour late, one day per week, to allow additional time for teacher collaboration and professional development.

 

As crafted by District 186 staff, the proposal would result in more total attendance days, with four days made slightly longer to accommodate the shorter fifth day, and would generate more hours devoted to teacher development.

 

It would also require adjustments for parents, including bus schedule changes on the one late day per week and the possible expansion of the SCOPE program to care for children on that day.  Board members say if the plan is to go forward, it should be adopted quickly to give parents plenty of lead time to prepare.
