1 What are the possibilities?

2  A balanced school calendar more evenly distributes the days students are currently attending school and the days they are on vacation across the year.  It is not a Year-Round Calendar  More “Balanced Calendar” Small changes that could result in a positive impact on student success.

7  All county districts must reach consensus on a calendar.  Each Board has autonomy to make a decision.  The districts would need at least a full year to plan for any change in the calendar.
