Year-round calendar to be discussed

From Staff ReportsJanuary 16, 2007 

— Concerned parents and community members are gearing up for a meeting of school officials today that could predict whether they will turn Chewning Middle School into a year-round program for all students.

The northern Durham school currently serves almost 800 students, about half of which go to school on a year-round calendar. The other half follow the traditional calendar, with a three-month summer break.

The meeting will be held at 4:30 p.m. at the Durham Public Schools headquarters at 511 Cleveland St. A few citizens may have the opportunity for public comment on the issue, but space is limited.

News & Observer is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
