On Wednesday Jan. 9, the Board of Education held its second budget workshop with Superintendent Dr. Gary Richards, the school principals and the district leadership team. Also on the agenda was a vote to revise next year’s school calendar in an attempt to get ahead of the chaos Mother Nature has thrown at us these past two years.
This is the fourth time next year’s calendar has been in front of the board, but given recent emails from parents requesting we give the topic more time, we moved the vote to our upcoming Feb. 7 meeting. The board has heard from many parents on this topic, and we are grateful for the time they have taken to contact us. We continue to welcome feedback at BOE@Wilton.K12.CT.US.
