If you have complaints about the school calendar for Evanston/Skokie District 65 elementary and middle schools, the board has set aside time at Monday’s meeting to hear your views.
Some people think the schools should stay in session for special holidays like Casimir Pulaski Day and Martin Luther King Jr. Day and to use that time to educate the kids about the legacy of those national heroes.
Others think that school should end before the summer heat arrives and begin again after the cool fall days have begun, thereby saving on air conditioning.
To help you make your case, the district has attached the calendars for the next three school years to the agenda packet for Monday’s meeting.
The public portion of the meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at district headquarters, 1500 McDaniel Ave.
