Solution for Education: Move teachers days and chancellors days to the end of the school yearSubmitted by nancy yates on Mon, 06/09/2014 - 12:06pm
Throughout the school year, schools close for a half or whole day for various reasons (teacher enrichment, chancellor meetings) leaving working parents to struggle to make child care plans for their kids. It's costly and difficult. Is there anyway these days can be moved to the end of the school year, or semester so that working parents can cover their kids and teachers can get those days they need. Please help! We've had 3 days off in the last two weeks. (1 whole day and 2 halves.) They say this is a DOE decision and we have to elevate this discusion beyond our individual schools. If there is any way you can help, many working families would appreciate it!
