Regional Forum Locations and Dates

Four dates in October, 2013 have been established for community forums across the Champlain Valley region regarding the proposed School Calendar 2.0 for the 2014-2015 school year.

Based on the Vermont Superintendent’s Association (VSA) Education Quality Framework and the VT World-Class Education Agenda, the proposed Calendar 2.0 is a new way of looking at what a school calendar could look like.

This calendar preserves the current 175 student days while building in blocks of times, or intersessions, that could be used for a variety of purposes by students, families, and teachers.  This calendar is still a proposal and is not yet finalized.  It is meant to engage educators, students and families around how to further the quality of education in this region.

The dates of these regional forums are:
  • Wednesday, Oct. 2, 6:30 p.m. – Essex High School
  • Thursday, Oct. 3, 6:30 p.m. – BFA St. Albans
  • Wednesday, Oct. 9, 6:30 p.m. – Burlington High School
  • Thursday, Oct. 10, 6:30 p.m. – Champlain Valley Union High School
