Balanced Calendar Survey

The Warrick County School Corporation is investigating the establishment of a balanced calendar. A balanced calendar would shorten the summer vacation break and provide for some weeks of additional vacation time during the traditional school year. The students would still attend school for 180 days as per Indiana law.

The school corporation is conducting this survey to gather your input about potentially moving to a balanced calendar in the future. There are no timelines for this transition since we are just beginning to explore all of the possibilities. Once we have determined parental interest for moving in this direction we will open up further dialogue with you and other community members.

The survey is conducted using the SurveyMonkey tool and the link to this survey is provided below. This survey has an example of the traditional school calendar which we currently use and an example of a possible balanced school calendar. The balanced school calendar provided in the survey is only an example and it is not a final product.

Please take a moment to fill out this short survey that has seven questions and one comment section. We will publish the results to the public at the conclusion of this survey. The survey will only be available until midnight Friday May 15th, 2015.

The Warrick County School Corporation would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to read this information and answer the survey questions.
