Bryan Adams feeder pattern schools are exploring calendar options to remedy learning loss caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
All schools in the Bryan Adams feeder pattern will adhere to the traditional calendar with enhanced summer school programs for students who need additional instruction.
If parents and teachers at a school ask for and demonstrate strong support for the intersession calendar, the administration will consider it for that school only. In the intersession model, the school year begins earlier in August and ends in June, rather than May. Throughout the school year, there will be five intersession weeks for small groups of students who need more individualized instruction. Other students will be on break.
“There are some real benefits to an intersession calendar, but it does not work for a lot of families,” Micciche said. “I am hopeful that one or two school communities in our feeder will request and be granted permission to use the intersession calendar.”
