Rumors about school calendar proposals within Lincoln County School District No. 2 were put to rest this week as LCSD2 released a school calendar survey.
Wednesday, Jan. 27 Lincoln County School District 2 sent an electronic survey for parents to complete regarding the 2016-17 school calendar. According to information provided by LCSD2, each household with students in the school district should receive an email on Wednesday, Jan. 27. The email contains a fact sheet for both calenders that are under discussion within the school district.
“We would ask for you to vote on which of the two proposed calendars is best for your family,” said Superintendent Alan Allred. If you do not receive an email containing the survey, contact Amanda Welch at the School District Office by calling 885-7136.
According to Allred, those households without access to email will have their surveys mailed through the postal service. The two calendar options that are under discussion include the following.
• A K-12 unified school calendar where all students in Star Valley follow a similar 4/5 day schedule to what Star Valley High School currently uses.
• A grade unified school calendar which is similar to what the school district currently utilizes. Elementary and middle schools would have a five day week. Star Valley High School would have a 4/5 day schedule.
The survey link will close on Sunday, Jan. 31. The comments and data on the calendars will then be compiled and presented to the Lincoln County School District No. 2 Board of Trustees on Feb. 11.
“I will make a recommendation to the school board at that time regarding which calendar is the preferred option,” said Allred. For more information on the school calendar proposals, contact the School District Office.
