More on tonight’s board meeting: 10/25/07

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. Water conservation efforts within GCS will be examined at tonight’s Board meeting (click here for the revised agenda), specifically letting some of our school buses go a little dirtier a little longer (see today’s News & Record for more).

The suspension of washing district-owned vehicles and dumpsters and irrigating athletic fields are also measures GCS has taken in light of our drought.


Next year’s 2008-09 academic calendar is also up for discussion. According to today’s High Point Enterprise, there are two proposals on the table. One of which is very similar to this year’s calendar, where school would start Aug. 26 of next year and end June 9, 2009, which includes a two week Christmas vacation. The other proposal would have students start school after Labor Day and end on June 10, 2009.

The GCS “calendar committee” is recommending option 1 to the board this evening.

E.C. 🙂
