LIBERTY - Casey County Board of Education will consider an alternative school calendar at the request of board member Mike Davis.
The board suggested Monday that Dale Wilson, director of pupil personnel, look into the issue and begin discussion with a calendar committee.
Davis told the board that Pulaski County has a calendar that allows classes to begin Aug. 4 and end May 18. Students get a two-week fall and spring break and a three-week Christmas break. During one week of each break, students who are borderline or falling behind can participate in an accelerating program four hours per day, Davis said.
In another matter, the board agreed to have a high school senior nominated to act as a student liaison to the board and serve as honorary member.
