The South Hamilton District Professional Development Committee met on 2/4/2015. One of the agenda items was the scheduling staff professional development and planning how to most effectively adjust the remainder of the 2014-2015 calendar for both instructional and PD requirement. Currently, the district has missed two days due to inclement weather and a portion, if not all, of the instructional hours will need to be recovered prior to end of the academic year. As per the South Hamilton 2014-2015 school calendar, the first “make-up” date is to be Friday, April 3rd and the second added to the end of the year, as of today, it would be Thursday, May 28th.
The PD/School Improvement Committee recommended that instead of having classes on Friday, April 3rd (Good Friday) that the next full day of PD to be held on Monday, February 23rd be modified into a half-day of classroom instruction and a half-day of professional development. Thus, on Monday, February 23rd, 2015 classes will be held in the a.m. with a 12:30 p.m. dismissal and the remainder of the day utilized for staff professional development. The South Hamilton Board of Directors gave consent to the calendar change at the 2-2015 meeting.
Therefore, the changes to the calendar will reflect the following:
- Monday, February 23rd classes held in the a.m. with a 12:30 p.m. student dismissal and PD to follow.
- Friday, April 3rd will be a NO SCHOOL DAY
- Thursday, May 28th will be a student day with a early dismissal TBD.
Any additional days and/or hours canceled/reduced will be added to the end of the school year if there is need as per day/hours of instruction state requirements and regulations.
