School Calendar Survey

This is a survey  for the Northumberland Community to provide input into next year's school calendar. At this time, the only 2 calendars that are in compliance with current legislation is the Aug. 24th and Sept. 8 student start dates. (Links are added at the end of this message)

However, if legislation is passed during the next General Assembly in the winter of 2020, it may be an option to start earlier than August 24th, 2020.  Our regional partners and surrounding counties are making calendars in the event this legislation is passed.  

The school calendar is a school board decision.  Please respond to this survey and I will provide the results and comments to the School Board at their November 12, 2019 school board meeting.  You are also welcome to attend this meeting, which begins at 6:00 p.m,. to provide public comments.

If you have any questions, please call or email Amy Lamb, Director of Instruction.
