Alternate plan for school calendar proposed
To the Editor:
This is for all Morgan County Citizens: Concerning the two proposed school calendars put forth to the BOE. These proposals have been put together by a Task Force of mostly people who work for the school system, with a few parents and business leaders, these people govern over when our children start school, how many breaks they get, and when school ends. As a Morgan County taxpayer, I believe we should have a say in this. I am against the two proposed plans that begin the school year way too early, and have devised my own proposal to have the students begin after the Labor Day Holiday. This plan will not interfere with any of the standardized testing that the kids are required to take. If you agree with the children starting school after Labor Day, I am suggesting you e-mail school board member Dave Belton and let him know you would like to have this third proposal heard. His e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to hear my proposal, please contact me; I am in the phone book, e-mail address is email@example.com, and I will be happy to share with you. I will also be making calls to the good citizens of our county. Thank you.
