Oregon-Davis School Board to Consider Balanced Calendar

Oregon-Davis-Jr_Sr-BuildingThe Oregon-Davis School Board will be considering a balanced calendar during their meeting tonight.

During their last meeting, Superintendent Greg Briles gave the board a couple of different calendars to study. Briles stated that the calenders are very similar in that they have 180 days of student instruction and 184 says for staff which is outlined in their contract. The calendars would include a break in the fall and an intersession to be coordinated with the Starke County Youth Club for remediation purposes. The first day of school would be Aug. 1 and last day would be June 1.

Briles added that he hopes the board can come to an agreement before January so staff members, students and parents have enough time to plan for next year.

The board members will also adopt the 2015 budget, consider listed items from the elementary school library as junk and consider accepting a $5,000 donation from the Starke County Economic Development Foundation.

The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Susan G. Rowles Board Room in the administration building on the school’s campus.
