27. PA1 - Adoption of 2013-2014 School Calendar
Attachment: Committee-Recommended 2013-2014 School Calendar.pdf
Minutes: 

Ms. Brill thanked Superintendent for closing during Veteran's Day.  Requested for Superintendent to have Jewish Holidays explained so that there is no after school activities, students nor teachers cannot be expected to stay late during those days nor teachers prohibited to take off. 

Superintendent Gent will inform Principals of the Jewish Holidays recommendation.  Informed that there is an academic impact to start school on 21st because of semester exams, and Kindergarteners starting in the middle of the week, it also helps us with transportation and logistic issues.  Will check with Calendar Committee and bring the calendar back next week.

Mr. Barbieri will not vote in favor of this calendar since 3 other school districts start on 19th and thinks we should be consistent with other districts.  Recommended to the Superintendent to bring the calendar back next week.

Ms. Andrews does not want school to start on 14th either and recommends that the starting date is moved.  Veterans need to be honored, children are home but not adults.  Asked Superintendent to come up with date and also to look at other Urban districts.  Suggested using the emergency make up days.

Ms. Brill suggested to start on 19th also.

Van Ludy explained that the rationale for having schools open on Veterans Day and explained the difference of exams between the first and second semester and concluding first semester before Winter Break which affects the starting day.  By contract, teachers have to have a Teacher Work Day at the end of each 9 Weeks.

Dr. Robinson left the meeting at 7:20pm.

Mr. Murgio said that if school starts on 19th, the first semester will be 82 days and that would be an issue for high schools.

Chairman Shaw informed that finishing the first semester before the Winter Break is important.  Also suggested to possibly eliminate one of the Professional Development days.



Motions:
I recommend adoption of the 2013-2014 School Calendar.  This recommendation is important to the District so a timely setting of the District calendar can be available to stakeholders.- FAIL

Attachment: Resolution on Sequestration.pdf
Attachment: Q&A.L1.pdf

Mr. Burke explained that one of the statements in the Resolution says to go back one year and it was recommended to go back to 2008 where it shows a 16% decline is State funding.



Motions:
I recommend the Board approve this resolution urging Congress and the Administration to amend the Budget Control Act to mitigate drastic cuts to education funding.- PASS
