School Board Approves Changes to District Calendar

Posted by District on 8/6/2020 5:30:00 PM

The St. Mary Parish School Board has voted to enact the changes to the district's School Calendar proposed by Dr. Teresa Bagwell at the Special Session held on Thursday, August 6, at 4:00 PM. 

The changes to the school calendar were based on several factors, including

  • the importance of providing additional preparation time as teachers transition to virtual instruction.
  • the desire to share more information with parents about their role when choosing a virtual education for their children.
  • the concerns of parents about returning their children to traditional learning in the face of a COVID-19 pandemic.
  • the need to ensure that the technology to make online learning work was ready to be deployed.

The Board's vote postpones the first day of school for St. Mary Parish students to Tuesday, Sept. 8.
