How did the year-round calendar come about?
01/11/2006 – Every year the calendar committee of the WCS Central Office devises a calendar for the Board’s approval. Last year, the committee proposed a start date in early August, 2005 for the ’05-’06 school year. The Board rejected it out of hand and directed a start date of mid-August or later. For the calendar proposed for ’06-’07, the committee proposed that students start classes on July 24.
