House Adds Committee Review to School Calendar Changes

The House of Delegates has voted to require that committees propose any school calendar changes recently allowed by legislation passed earlier this session, The Associated Press reports.

The bill passed 83-12 reserves seats on each county's committee for teachers, administrators and school workers -- but not parents.

The committee would propose at least two school calendar plans annually, and put them to the county's school employees for a vote.

The county and state boards must each approve proposed changes, or send the committee back to the drawing board.
