School Board approves 2010-11 school calendar

The King George School Board last week approved a school calendar for next year, 2010-11.
The action took place at a meeting on March 22.  
King George Education Association (KGEA) co-chairman Urzetta Lewis and division Coordinator of Testing & Instructional Support Jennifer Collins had developed and presented several calendar versions to the School Board in February with the assistance of a committee.
The calendar version that was most popular with staff members was presented in February from five that had been the subject of online and paper surveys distributed to school staff.
At the Feb. 22 meeting, the School Board agreed to a request from Mike Rose to have snow days built into the recommended calendar version.  
Last week, Lewis and Collins were back, this time with two versions.  Following discussion of the merits of the two calendar drafts, the School Board voted 3-1 for the approved calendar detailed below. Four members of the School Board were present at the meeting, with Lynn Pardee absent.  Rick Randall voted against the motion.
