Balanced Calendar – What is it?

East Noble School Corporation is considering a balanced calendar for the 2014-2015 school year.  A balanced calendar is not year round school!  Instead, it is a calendar that has balanced breaks throughout the school year and eliminates most of the “one day” breaks.  IF ENSC were to use a balanced calendar, it would look something like this:

  • Start Date would be around August 7 or 8.
  • A one or two week break would fall in early November or the week before and the week of Thanksgiving.
  • A two week break for winter break.
  • A two week break for spring break.  These weeks would fall the last week of March and the first full week of April.
  • The last day of the year would be some time during the week of June 1.
  • Snow days would be made up at the end of the year; however, we could add a few make up days in May.
