A proposal to begin the District 15 school year a week earlier for the 2013-2014 school year will not see the light of day, and the main reason is response from the community.
In October, the school district presented a schedule that would have differed from previous years, which had a scheduled start date of Monday, August 19, 2013.
"Out of 400 repondents, roughly 300 didn't like the earlier start, and because of that resopnse, we went back to what was initially proposed for the calendar in January," said Scott Thompson, superintendent of schools for District 15.
The earlier start proposal for 2013-14 school would have differed from calendars for Township High School Districts 211 and 214, though winter and spring breaks would have been the same between all three districts.
The 2013-2014 school year is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 26, 2013.
