EC School Board Approves Changes to School Calendar

June 19, 2013

The Elbert County Board of Education held their monthly regular meeting last night.

The 2013-2014 school calendar was amended with a unanimous vote yesterday.

Associate Superintendent/Curriculum Director Chuck Bell explains the reasoning for the change.

“We adjust the spring break dates so we can in fact get CRCT and modified CRCT testing in, and then get the results back in time for us to do an appropriate remediation”, explained Bell. “The rest of the calendar will remain the same.”

Other matters discussed, were the out of school tuition policy being updated.

The change is expected to consist of leaving the out of school tuition fee for non-residents up to the discretion of the superintendent.

The update on the policy will be posted online for thirty days for public view and will come to a decision in the July regular meeting.
