Vestaburg Community School is exploring the possibility of a Balanced Calendar for the 2015-2016 school year. A balanced calender includes the same number of days of school as students currently attend, however, it spreads the days out in a more balanced manner. Research shows that At-Risk students perform at a much higher level and experience much less “summer slide” or skill loss with a balanced calendar. A balanced calendar would include a 6 week summer break and 3 two-week breaks throughout the year. One of the weeks would be used as an Intersession to help students that are struggling. However, no decision has been made and as a district we want to get feedback from the community and parents. We ask that you take a few minutes and complete the following survey as we try to gain more data and input.
