A Message from the Superintendent

Posted by Patrick Tierney at 3/22/2017 9:00:00 AM

Hello Jefferson,

I would like to bring to everyone's attention that the Board of Education adopted a revised calendar for the 2017-2018 school year at the February meeting.

This calendar can be found on the district website. I encourage you to take a glance.

I want to point out that the last day of school for students is now June 21st.

Also included in this calendar are ten (10) early dismissal days. For those that are unaware, the district will be implementing three new curricula (ELA - Balanced Literacy, Mathematics, and the Next Generation Science Standards) in grades Kindergarten through Grade 5. The implementation of these new curricula require our instructional staff members to acquire additional training. It is our intention to utilize these 10 early dismissal days to provide the much-needed professional development to our staff to ensure the programs are implemented correctly.

If anyone has questions, please feel free to reach out to your child's building principal for further explanation.

Thank you in advance for your understanding while we look to enhance the learning environment for our children.
