7.B. Discussion and possible action on new school calendar for school year 2020-2021. 
Rationale:  The calendar revision serves many purposes
  • Construction at Redstone has been delayed because of rain and shut down of production lines at companies because of Covid. This will give us a better opportunity to open the building if not in full, hopefully at least 4th and 5th grade ( we have made plans for 4th - 6th or just 6th to be in old 6th grade center if needed).
  • With our new mandate to provide continuous learning even if we are not in school our staff needs more professional development days while on contract to learn the new program and begin the preparation of online lessons for students.
  • This will also allow us a little of a buffer between the currently increasing number of cases daily and what we pray will be a decreasing trend by August.
  • The end date of school does not change, it does however decrease the number of "extra" days we have available. In the case of extended weather or other somewhat predictable emergencies we will have the ability to use our learning management system and virtual classrooms to mitigate that loss of time.
