Calendar Committee Established to Recommend Options
The Boyle County Board of Education approved the 2018-2019 school calendar at its regular monthly meeting on Thursday, December 21. Pursuant to recent changes to KRS 158.070, Kentucky school districts are required to form a committee to review, develop and recommend annual instructional calendars.
Appointed by Superintendent Mike LaFavers, the ten-person committee was comprised of parents, teachers, staff, administrators and local tourism and business officials. The group reviewed and discussed state laws and regulations, past instructional calendars, feedback survey results and community considerations before reaching consensus and recommending a calendar to Superintendent LaFavers and the Board of Education.
