School Board To Discuss District Calendar

OrabsSheldon, Iowa — When the Sheldon Community Schools Board of Education holds their regular monthly meeting Wednesday, one of the items on their agenda will be the 2015-16 District Calendar.

Sheldon Superintendent Robin Spears says the calendar for next school year is still up in the air.  He says it’s clear that application for an early start date waiver would be extremely difficult to obtain due to the very high bar set by the Iowa Department of Education. As a result, the Board will look at some alternatives for start dates at Wednesday’s meeting.

Spears is also scheduled to update the Board on the progress of the East Elementary Building & Renovation project at Wednesday’s meeting.  In addition, the Board will take up four Open Enrollment Applications, handle a pair of resignations, and be asked to approve a coaching contract, along with numerous other routine items of business.

Wednesday’s School Board meeting begins at 6 pm in the high school library.
