Leslie Bell, Director of Curriculum, gave a report on the English Language Arts Text Adoption Process.
The board approved the 2020-2021 School Calendar (Option B) with the following changes: shifting the two days of Fall Recess to December 21-22 to create a two-week Winter Break and moving the End of Term Student Recess Day from October 30 to October 23. Note: the Utah Education Association no longer hosts a two-day educator conference in October.
The board voted to request a one-time waiver from the 180-day student instruction requirement from the State Superintendent. This means that the Emergency Closure Make-Up Day, which was scheduled for May 24, 2019, will be used for professional learning for teachers and not student instruction. If approved by the State Superintendent, this will put the last day of school back to Thursday, May 23, 2019.
