NEW BUSINESS
2013 – 14 School Calendar                                                      The Board reviewed five calendar options prepared by Superintendent Paul. Two calendars proposed a one full day per month for professional development, this would add eight additional days to teachers’ contracts, as the missed student contact day per month would need to be made up in order to meet the required contact days. This option would not be feasible. Two calendars proposed an every other week early out on Wednesdays. This option would call for earlier dismissals on the Wednesday early outs.
                                                                                                The fifth option was the weekly early outs calendar.
                                                                                                Motion by Karels, second by Anderson to approve the 2013-14 as proposed with the weekly early outs on Wednesdays.
