A FIRST LOOK AT THE ASSESSMENT CALENDAR FOR NEXT YEAR

You may have heard that there are many changes coming to State level assessments like the OAA and OGT. Here is a first look at how those State level tests will look in our school calendar.  As always, this calendar is subject to change with pending legislation.  In the weeks to come, we will build in our local assessments to this unique calendar view. 2014-2015 Assessment Calendar Long View, 2014-2015 Assessment Calendar Traditional View

MAKE-UP DAYS AND BLIZZARD BAG INFORMATION

Dear Cardington-Lincoln Families,

As of February 10th, we have missed eight (8) days as a result of weather conditions. Considering that we missed three days due to weather just in March in the 2012-2013 school year, I am anticipating that we will have additional calamity days in the next four to five weeks.  Without legislative assistance, the District will be making up school days. The first make-up day will be FOR TEACHERS ONLY on February 17th.  The first make-up day FOR STUDENTS is scheduled for June 2nd and the second make-up will be June 3rd. We are hoping that it will be a little warmer then. If the Governor approves a law change that will impact the status of our make-up days, parents will be informed in writing and by our call system.  Click here to access more information about blizzard bag assignments.


HOW MANY DAYS???
Updated April 1, 2014
With the Governor's signature on Amended House Bill 416, we will not need to make up additional school days this year. 

For those who are wondering where this year stands historically in regards to missed days, it is one of the worst in the last ten years. Click Here to See the History



Without legislative assistance, the District will be making up days.  As of February 7, we have missed 8 days as a result of weather conditions.  Because one of our calamity days was for a scheduled Waiver/Inservice Day, the first make-up day will be FOR TEACHERS ONLY on February 17th.  The first student make-up day is scheduled for June 2nd and the second make-up will be June 3rd. We are hoping that it will be a little warmer then. Read more...
