FYI for all School-Age Child Care parents.The Kennewick School District Board of Directors has made changes to the 2018-19 calendar in order to make up for lost instructional time due to snow days. After looking at a variety of options to meet the state’s instructional time requirement, the School Board decided to make changes that keep the last day of school as close to the original planned date as possible. This will be done by adding school days to the end of the year, using a planned snow-make up day, applying for a state waiver, and eliminating early release time on the calendar. The changes are: -The last day of school has moved to Friday, June 14. This will be a full school day. -Friday, May 24 will become a school day. This was previously indicated as a snow make-up day if needed on the school calendar. -There will be no Wednesday Early Releases for K-12 or early releases for Report Card Prep for the remainder of the school year beginning March 25, 2019. Early release for parent and student conferences will still occur. -Graduation dates will remain the same and NO SENIOR SATURDAYS will be needed. We want to thank the Kennewick Education Association for offering to eliminate early release time in the teachers’ contract for the remainder of the school year and for working with us to reduce the number of make-up days needed. -Kennewick School District ----- La Mesa Directiva del Distrito Escolar de Kennewick ha hecho algunos cambios al calendario del ciclo escolar 2018-19 para recuperar el tiempo de instrucción perdido debido a los días que se cancelaron las clases. Después de revisar una variedad de opciones para cumplir con los requisitos estatales del tiempo de instrucción, la Mesa Directiva Escolar ha decidido hacer cambios para mantener el último día de clases lo más cerca posible al día originalmente planeado. Esto será realizado al agregar días de clases al final del ciclo escolar, utilizando los día designados para recuperar tiempo debido a la nieve, solicitando una exoneración por el estado, y eliminando los días del calendario que saldrían temprano. Los cambios son: -El último día de clases será el viernes, 14 de junio. Sera un día de clases regular. -El viernes, 24 de mayo, habrá clases. Esto había sido previamente indicado en el calendario escolar como un día de recuperación de tiempo de instrucción debido a la nieve si fuera necesario. -Los miércoles no saldremos temprano ni los días de preparación de boletas de calificaciones por lo que resta del ciclo escolar comenzando el 25 de marzo del 2019. Aun saldremos temprano durante las reuniones de padres y estudiantes. -El día de graduación seguirá siendo el mismo y NO SE NECESITARA que los estudiantes de último año de preparatoria asistan los sábados. Agradecemos a la Asociación de Educación de Kennewick por ofrecernos la eliminación de salida temprano los miércoles en el contrato de los maestros por lo que resta el ciclo escolar y por trabajar con nosotros para reducir el número de días que necesitamos para recuperar el tiempo de instrucción. ...
