Calendar Change Possible?


At Monday's Loudon County School Board meeting a host of parents and teachers were in attendance to show their support for a change in the 08-09 Loudon County school calendar. The group, represented by Teresa Karimain, presented several arguments protesting the August 4th start date. The group is asking that the start date be pushed back at least a week. Some board members seemed opened to a change. However, board member, Leroy Tate, suggested that the board meet with the "calendar committee" to find out why they had set the date so early.

Unfortunately, no one on the board nor director Headlee knew who the "calendar committee" actually is. Board members asked that Ms. Karimian and BOE members meet with the "calendar committee" Wednesday morning to discuss the possible change in the calendar.

I will bring you an update after Wednesday's meeting. 

A calendar change for Loudon county Schools may be decided this Monday, May 5th, @ 6:00 at the Workshop meeting (Central Office)
Are you concerned about your child going to school in HOT class rooms, riding un-air conditioned buses  and short summers.  If you are PLEASE come to the meeting we need your support!
Thank you.
If you have any questions please call me.
