The results of a parent survey show that their desires apparently conflict with the Whitnall School District's new plan for letting elementary children out of school early some days and having secondary students start late some days so that teachers have time to collaborate.
The results, presented Monday night to the Whitnall School Board, indicated that parents heavily favor having half days off of school for all children occasionally. The current plan is to let elementary children out early once a week and have secondary students come to school later twice a month.
But because of parents' objections to that plan which the School Board approved in January, the board last month decided to take a survey. The board will take the matter up at a future meeting. The plan as approved, however, is slated to go into effect this fall.
