La Crosse School Considers Year Round Calendar

LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- A La Crosse elementary school is considering plans for a year-round academic calendar.

 

School officials at Hamilton Early Learning hope to shorten the summer break to six weeks, and have the school year alternate between nine weeks of school and three weeks of down-time.

 

Some School officials believe student regress during summer break, while others think the plan could cause problems for teachers. Randy Nelson, the district superintendent, says it is possible for staffers could be working on two different calendars since many commute during the week to others schools in the district.

 

Officials from the school expect more community meetings before a new calendar is adopted, and will provide an update Monday their plans.
