On Dec. 3 the Carroll ISD board of trustees were presented with two potential school calendars for the upcoming school year. The community can provide feedback until Jan. 9 regarding the two proposed calendars and select which they prefer.
CISD is using the two-way communication tool Let’s Talk to receive feedback, according to a news release. Within Let’s Talk the community is given the option to select their preferred calendar option and also submit a comment or question. If submitting a comment or question users are encouraged to leave their names and email addresses in the provided areas on the form.
Because CISD is a district of innovation the district can be flexible with its school calendar and create a calendar that best meets the needs of the students, the release said.
The two calendar options are primarily the same, except the fall exam schedule and the spring break professional development day dates are different. Option 1 has the fall exam schedule for all grades Dec. 17-18 and exam days Dec.19-20 for all grades with early release for grades 5-12. Option 2 has the fall exam schedule for all grades Dec. 16-17 and exam days for grades 5-12 on Dec. 18-19. Dec. 20 would be a school holiday for students, making it one less instructional day than option 1.
Option 1 proposes a professional development day on March 6, and option 2 proposed a professional development day on March 20.
