personally, I am for revisiting the idea because I feel it was hastily dismissed. She has also released some financial data that wasn't released at the meeting either.

I agree that the the SB decision seemed too quick for the amount of time and effort that the calendar committee dedicated to the issue. Furthermore I have met plenty of people that were actually in favor of Calendar A. And unfortunately the complaint I have heard from many as well, is that the SB asks for public opinion and input. ...but in the end the SB does what it at wants. I am not saying that it always the case and I recognize that the SB can't make everyone happy, but that is a common complaint I hear from other parents. The SB should consult with other counties that have adopted the pre-Labor Day start before making a decision. It would do them good in the court of public opinion.

Hey thanks for joining the forum, we will see if we can get it off the ground. That is a huge perception problem that the SB has, that they ask for inout but disregard it. I don't think that is intentional on their part but that is what people think and this kind of behavior reinforces that belief. Consulting with other counties is a great place to start, seems like a very common sense suggestion. It makes you wonder why it wasn't done in the first place by SCPS.

    The 2nd Calendar survey went out last week, did you vote for a pre or post labor day start?
