Not much will change as far as calendars go for the next two school years after the Board of Education unanimously approved the 2015-16 and 2016-17 school calendars for Wilton public schools during its May 28 meeting.
“There is only one change. We’re moving the professional learning day from Feb. 3 to Dec. 11,” said Board of Education Chair Bruce Likly.
“Dr. Smith asked that we do that to provide greater flexibility to them [the teachers].”
Likly said the 2016-17 calendar is “very much in line with the school calendar this year and the one we’ll have next year.”
“If there are changes we do need to make to the 15-16 calendar, we will revisit it,” he said, adding that “approving the 16-17 calendar now enables our families to start planning their vacations.”
