2018-19 Calendar Change Discussion

2018-19 Calendar Change Discussion

calendar change discussion
  • The Wake County Public School System school board and staff are reviewing all year-round-calendar schools across the district. They want to determine if changing the calendars of some schools could lead to more efficient use of our school buildings and transportation system.


    Why is this being discussed?


    Because we live in a large and growing school district, board members want to ensure all school buildings are being used efficiently.

    

Board members and staff are considering whether changing the calendars of some schools could lead to a more balanced use of our school facilities.


    
Why is this being discussed now?


    Decisions need to be made in the first half of this year, because any changes would affect the student enrollment plan for the 2018-19 school year.

    That plan will be discussed starting in August of this year and must be approved by early December.




    What is the timeline?


    The discussion is proposed to occur in three phases, starting Feb. 21 and likely lasting until June.

    Phase I: Starting Feb. 21, the board will discuss and make decisions about changes to Track 4 (single track) year-round schools, as well as modified calendar Carver Elementary. Learn more

    Phase II: Starting April 4, the board will discuss and make decisions regarding any changes to multi-track year-round schools. More information will be presented about this discussion at that time. Learn more

    Phase III: Starting May 2, the board will discuss and make decisions regarding any changes to modified calendar schools that are also magnet schools. More information will be presented at that time.
