Extended Year Calendar - Parents and Community

Over the last several months, Warren County Public Schools has been exploring an extended year calendar and discussing changes that might benefit our students. 

An extended year calendar will continue to have 180 school days.  In an extended year calendar school would start the first part of August and end the middle of June.  There would be a built in break after each nine week advisory.  An extended year calendar offers the opportunity for students to participate in remediation and enrichment after each advisory.  These breaks are called intersessions.  If a student does not participate in remediation or enrichment during the intersession, the intersession week would be a holiday for the student.

This link will take you to a sample extended year calendar.

3rd and 4th grade students at E. Wilson Morrison and Ressie Jeffries have the opportunity to attend a free, fun enrichment program at Ressie Jeffries Elementary School this summer.  The program will take place each Wednesday from 8:30-1:30 from June 13-July 25.  Lunch will be provided and transportation assistance will be available.  If you did not receive a flyer, please contact your child's school or the school board office for more information.  Space is limited.
