Mcps Calendar 22 23 – The president of the Montgomery County School Board was pleased this week to see progress on a state law that would give his county and other districts more leeway when designing their academic calendars.
The proposal, introduced by Sen. Nancy King of Montgomery Village, would allow local education officials to extend the school year by five days starting June 15 without getting permission from the state. The move would help simplify the planning options Governor Larry Hogan has handed to local school systems.

“So it’s definitely helpful, and I think … it’s going to give us a little more wiggle room, especially as we go through an uncertain winter,” School Board President Michael Durso said Friday.

Currently, schools cannot extend the school year beyond June 15 for make-up days unless they receive permission from the state. As a result, Montgomery County Public Schools has identified two days of spring break as possible dates where school time has been lost due to inclement weather. MCPS was forced to cut short its spring break, which ends Tuesday.
Durso and his colleagues have repeatedly called on Hogan to relax the requirement that classes begin after Labor Day and end by June 15, saying the ban makes planning for the school year difficult. So far, the governor has rejected them and explained the reason for the calendar problems with the increase in teaching days.
However, after the Maryland House of Representatives passed King’s bill this week, Hogan’s spokeswoman said the governor agreed with the legislation.

“It is widely accepted that the majority of Marylanders, including parents and teachers, support the return of the school-wise calendar beginning after Labor Day, an initiative that received strong bipartisan support prior to Governor Hogan’s executive order. Recognizing that the climate Unexpected mishaps can happen – often in our state – and schools are sometimes in dire need, the Governor supports Senator King’s legislation and will sign it into law,” Amelia Chasset, the Governor’s spokeswoman, said in an email.
“I think I will not dare to analyze the governor’s decision. He is very quick-witted in such situations and may have seen things differently. This is an election year; I don’t think he can be discounted,” he said.
The bill, which takes effect on July 1, has already been approved by the Senate, but must return to the House of Representatives to consider an amendment. Montgomery County School Board members on Tuesday approved a calendar for the 2017-2018 school year that includes two spring break dates as potential snow dates.

The board acknowledged that the weekend threat may worry students and parents, but said their hands are tied because of Gov. Larry Hogan’s recent order that classes begin after Labor Day and end by June 15.
According to board member Patricia O’Neill, creating a calendar within those parameters was like “putting a size 10 into a size 7 shoe.” She invited board members to express their concerns to Hogan in a letter attached to a “wrapped calendar.” Her friends agreed to send the letters.
The 2017-2018 school year will begin on September 5, 2017 and end on June 14, 2018, with spring break scheduled from March 26 to April 2. The calendar has seven days: March 26 and 27 and June 15. from 18 to 21 – to compensate for any winter weather.

According to Andrew Zuckerman, the system’s chief operating officer, the school system can handle two closures without using comp dates because the MCPS calendar is already several days longer than required by state law. For the third cancellation, the summer vacation should be delayed by one day.
But if there is a fourth shutdown, school officials will have to make “difficult decisions” about whether to go into spring break or let the state suspend classes after June 15, Zuckerman said.
Board member Rebecca Smondrowski asked her colleagues to tell distraught parents that a state order was the reason for cutting the calendar. weekends during winter and spring holidays. The following changes have been made to the traditional and modern academic year calendars:
