Balanced Calendar to be Implemented Next Year at Knox Schools

CalendarThe Knox School Board expects to implement the balanced calendar schedule in the 2015-2016 school year.

Superintendent A.J. Gappa says additional coordination with other schools, especially in areas of welding and building trades classes, will be necessary, but worth the effort.

“Well, we think there’s value in the balanced calendar because the shorter times you have between school sessions you have less loss of learning and that’s the benefit for kids,” said Gappa.
