Discussion

At the past three School Board meetings, March 11, 25, and April 22, the Board has discussed the 2008-2009 school year calendar.  At the direction of the Board, the Superintendent was asked to have Joy Salamone, Director of Human Resources Services and Labor Relations, to meet with representatives of the Brevard Federation of Teachers and gather input on the 2008-2009 school year calendar.  As a result of this discussion, Option 3 with amendments is being recommended for Board approval.  (See Attachment)

Approval of Option 3 with amendments will change the Board-approved school year calendar standards.  These changes in the standards will be brought to the Board at a later date for approval.
