Two school calendars considered

By Kara Hallissey | Nov 30, 2017

(Dec. 1, 2017) A 24-member committee comprised of students, parents, teachers and administrators at Worcester County Public Schools has developed two calendar proposals for the 2018-2019 school year.

One group created a calendar with longer breaks while the other focused on spreading out their days off. Both calendars mark June 14 as the last day of school.

In August 2016, Gov. Larry Hogan signed an executive order requiring all school systems in Maryland to begin school after Labor Day and to conclude no later than June 15.

The proposals differ in length for vacation and marking periods in addition to the placement of professional and half days.

This month, the proposals will be sent to county schools to obtain additional input and the information will be compiled.

At the January or February 2018 board meeting, the results will be presented along with a recommended calendar from the superintendent for the 2018-2019 school year.
