Guilford County Schools (GCS) is seeking feedback on four traditional
school calendar options for the 2010-11 school year. Parents, school
staff and community members can provide comments through Dec. 10.
committee of parents, community members and faith community
representatives along with teachers, principals and central office
employees developed three of the calendar options. A fourth option was
developed by GCS staff in response to feedback from district
administrators. Each option aligns with state law and attempts to
reconcile concerns expressed previously by parents, educators, the
Guilford County Board of Education and community members.
four options use Aug. 25, 2010 as the first day of school. Two options
choose June 9, 2011 as the last day of school, one uses June 7 and
another uses June 10. Student breaks, teacher workdays and make-up days
fall differently within each calendar. North Carolina students must
attend school 180 days each school year.
