At their January meeting, the Board approved the 2020-2021 school year calendar*. Dr. Derek Simmons, Director of Student Services, reviewed the legal requirements for school calendars and the process by which the 2020-2021 calendar was developed.
Dr. Simmons stated that this year, the process included two separate surveys, one that gauged general preferences and one that presented four draft calendars. He shared those results with the Board, explaining that while draft calendar D honored the feedback given in the first survey, the second survey clearly showed it was the least preferred calendar.
After discussion, the Board unanimously voted to adopt calendar A, which was most preferred according to the survey. For more information on the school calendar, please visit the Caroline County Public Schools website.
*This is a preliminary calendar; the final version will include pre-K and report cards dates.
