The Board of Education approved the proposed calendars based on pending legislation regarding Professional Development hours. Calendar A represents the calendar that will be in place until/if the passage of Section 101(10) of the State School Aid Act. Section 101(10) is new language that would permit the district to count qualifying Professional Development for teachers as hours of pupil instruction. Calendar B represents the calendar that will be used if/when Section 101(10) of the State School Aid Act is passed.
