School Calendar Survey: Tell Howard County What You Think
The school calendar has been a controversial issue among parents, especially when the 2010–2011 academic year had to be extended because of snow storms.
Romberger said plans for family trips and summer camps were foiled by the late end date, which was six days beyond the planned conclusion of the school year.
To improve the situation, Howard County public schools have requested your help. Tell officials what you think by taking this survey set up by the school system.
"Your input is very important to the process, especially when changes are under consideration," stated Weekly News for Parents, an email bulletin from the school system.
The calendar is being created for the 2012–2013 school year and must be approved by the summer.
