Rochester Public Schools is looking for feedback on two calendars that are proposed for the 2018-2019 school year.  One of those calendars suggests starting school before Labor Day.

According to their website and an email that was sent, Rochester Public Schools is considering the earlier start to allow more time for bigger construction projects that they have planned for the Spring of 2019.  The message below is part of the e-mail sent out earlier this week by Superintendent, Michael Muñoz:

Dear Parents, Students, Staff, and Community Members,
On behalf of the students we serve, I invite you to help us shape the future of Rochester Public Schools by sharing your thoughts on the 2018-2019 school calendar for our District.  You'll be asked to share your thoughts through two open-ended questions and then consider and rate the thoughts of others. This will help us get a sense of what matters to our community as we consider changes to our school calendar. All thoughts and ratings shared during an exchange are confidential. By participating, your thoughts and star ratings will be shared with others but your identity will remain private.Your time spent engaged in this process is very much appreciated.
The school district is looking for feedback from the entire community as this decision does impact more than just students.  They are using ThoughtExchange.com to help facilitate the conversation and the site will remain open for this conversation until 8 pm on Thursday, December 14th, 2017.
