Decatur Schools wants feedback on calendars
City Schools of Decatur has postponed approving its calendar for the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 school years to give parents more time to comment.
The School Board tabled approving the calendar for 30 days at its July 8 meeting.
“I know that, believe it or not, people are out there making their plans well in advance,” Superintendent Phyllis Edwards said.
There were several days missed in the 2013-2014 school year due to snow. The Calendar Committee recommended adding four days during the February break in the 2014-2015 school year as makeup days.
The recommended makeup days are:
February 16, 2015
February 17, 2015
February 18, 2015
February 19, 2015

The deadline for comments is Aug. 7.
A notice from CSD says the Calendar Committee, “seeks to create balanced semester schedules” of 90 days per semester.
