The Rogers School District welcomes feedback from its stakeholders. Surveys are one of the ways we gather input to help better meet the needs of our students, assess the effectiveness of a program or a training, and plan for the future. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and comments.
Certified Staff Calendar Vote
The district calendar was revised on Jan. 21, 2014. Since then we have missed 3 additional days of school (Feb. 3, 4, and 5) due to inclement weather. The Personnel Policies Committee conducted an informal survey last week. The PPC calendar committee has utilized that information and has submitted the following two options for your consideration:
a) Use Memorial Day and add days to end of calendar
a. Students last day would be Thursday, June 5
b. Teacher work day would be Friday, June 6
b) Use 2 days of Spring Break (Monday and Tuesday) and Memorial Day
a. Students last day would be Tuesday, June 3
b. Teacher work day would be Wednesday, June 4
c. The district with school board approval would be eligible to submit a waiver request to the Arkansas Department of Education. The days missed beyond 10 are eligible to be waived, if granted.
We need all certified personnel to vote electronically and all classified staff to vote using the paper ballot. Voting will begin on Wednesday, February 12, and end at 4:00 pm on Thursday, February 13.
Additional factors to consider:
If the preferred option is to have school on Monday and Tuesday of Spring Break, personal leave will be considered on a case-by-case basis. It will be important to have documentation of trip booked prior to calendar change.
Regardless of which option is selected, if additional days are missed due to inclement weather, those days would be added to the end of the school year. If the spring break option is selected, those additional days missed could possibly be waived by the ADE.Calendar Vote
