Montgomery Considers School Calendar Change
Wednesday, 20 March 2013

March 20--  The Montgomery County school system is considering a change to its school calendar.

At its March meeting, the county school board heard a proposal from Superintendent Randy Rodgers which would reduce the number of school days but increase the number of hours in each school day.

Rodgers said the option is like the one currently employed by Toombs County and would reduce the number of class days by about 13 while lengthening the school day by a half-hour.  Classes would start at 7:30 a.m. and end at 3:15 p.m.

The board took the recommendation under advisement and will decide on the calendar at a future meeting.

The superintendent also informed the board that he's seeing a downward trend in the collection of sales taxes which, if it continues, could further hurt the school system's finances.
