Ed Affairs Committee Presentation November 2020
With co-chair Pam Henry presiding, the Educational Affairs committee met via Zoom on Tuesday, Nov 17. Assistant Superintendent Dr. Tamara Thomas Smith reviewed the district’s proposed calendars for the next two academic years, noting these calendars do not have any substantive changes relative to the current school year’s calendar. The 2021-22 school year will begin August 31 and finish June 17. The 2022-23 school year will begin on August 29 and wrap on June 17. Both calendars include school closures in observance of Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah, and contain professional development days. Four snow days are included in each calendar, though it was noted, with remote learning becoming a reality, snow days may be coming to an end. The calendars will be brought up for a vote at the December 8 legislative board meeting. The next Educational Affairs meeting is Tuesday, Dec. 18 and will focus on educational technology.
