March 03, 2021 1:09pm

The Storm Lake School Board at a special meeting today (Wed) gave Superintendent Dr. Stacey Cole the go-ahead to put a draft version of the 2021-2022 school year calendar on the district's website.

The 1st semester next school year is scheduled to begin on Monday, August 23rd. Graduation is scheduled for May 22nd of 2022.

Parent-Teacher Conferences were done differently this school year, and the same concept would be applied next year during November and March. Evening conferences would be offered the first day, morning and afternoon slots the next day, and then a teacher comp day. Dr. Cole said the district received positive feedback from parents and teachers on the new conference schedule.

Dr. Cole said the majority of people wanted a combination of during and at the end of the school year make-up days. The first make-up day would be February 21st. Dr. Cole is only comfortable building in one virtual make-up day. The five remaining make-up days would start on May 20th.

Winter break would be December 23rd through the 31st, with 2nd semester starting January 4th. Spring break would run from April 14th through the 18th of 2022.

Homecoming will be scheduled once district football is released.

A public hearing will be scheduled before 2021-2022 calendar gets approved.
