11-20-2012 Organization of the Board with Oath and Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #53


Title
Year-Round Schools

Discussion
In 1991, Brevard Public Schools initiated a year-round calendar option for some elementary schools in the District.  Challenger 7 Elementary School and Gardendale Elementary School have remained on the year-round calendar for over 20 years.  There has been no substantial difference in student achievement under the year-round schedule, and in a move to further improve District efficiency, the Superintendent recommends the return to a traditional calendar for all Brevard Public Schools for the 2013-2014 school year.

Recommendation
Approve the return to a traditional calendar for all Brevard Public Schools.
