The Northfield Board of Education and district administration would like to invite parents, students and community members to participate in a broad discussion of the future of school calendars, beyond 2013-14. The first of three calendar meetings will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on March 7 in the high school upper cafeteria.
The March meeting will include a review of the history and elements of academic calendars around the world and in the United States. Board and administration will gather ideas from attendees about calendar features that best support student learning. Discussion will include the level of involvement that meeting participants would like to have in upcoming months.
The second and third calendar discussions have been scheduled for April 2 and April 30. Both meetings will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. in the high school upper cafeteria.
