Educational Calendar and Organization
Organization of Instruction
The School District has instructional levels for grades Kindergartenthrough eighth. The Superintendent shall annually present to the School Board a plan for organizing instructional levels and assigning them to school facilities in order to:
- Support the District’s educational program,
- Maximize facility usage without undue overcrowding, and
- Provide substantially comparable instructional programs across the District.
Students, for instructional purposes, may be placed in groups within a school that do not necessarily follow grade level designations. For purposes of attendance reporting and other records, however, each student isassigned a grade-level placement.
The District maintains a full-day kindergarten with an instructional program that fulfills the District’s curriculum goals and objectives and the requirements of the State law. The District also offers a half-day kindergarten for those parents/guardians who request a half-day program.ADOPTED: June 18, 2018
