Calendar Voting Open
Friday January 29, 2016

The Cumberland County School system is currently working on the calendar for the next school year. Voting is now open on which approach the school system will take concerning the format of the calendar. There are 3 options to choose from. Option 1 is similar to this year’s calendar, Option 2 would be a transition to a year-round schedule, and Option 3 is nearly identical to this year’s calendar. At Thursday night's Board of Education meeting, Ms. Christie Thompson presented this information, adding that of the nearly 700 people who had voted as of then, it seems like Option 2 was being favored.
