2010-11 School year extended

-A A +A
By The Staff

The School Board of Levy County on Tuesday approved a revised calendar for the 2010-2011 school year that lengthens the school year by several days, yet adds a few perks for students and teachers.

The board discussed two potential calendars at Tuesday’s twice-monthly meeting, both of which contained various pros and cons.

The approved calendar for next year puts the final day of school at June 9, as opposed to June 3, which was presented as an alternative.

With the new calendar, the first semester is extended for area schools from 40 days to 45. Teachers will get an extra day off (Nov. 24) for the Thanksgiving break, and the Christmas break is also extended by three days.

Also, exams will be pushed back to after the Christmas break under the new Calendar, to Jan. 12-14. The alternative had the exams scheduled for Dec. 20-22.

Also at the meeting, the board approved an April 29 hearing on Superintendent Bob Hastings’ recommendation to terminate the employment of Linda Yon.
