Special School Board Meeting June 20, 2011

Cloudcroft to Determine Fate of Proposed Four Day School Week
The Cloudcroft Board of Education will hold a special meeting on Monday, June 20, 2011 at 6:00 PM in the High School Commons, at #10 Swallow Place to take community input and vote on the four day week condensed school calendar for the 2011-2012 school year. The Board of Education had previously voted and passed the four day school week at the May 9, 2011 board meeting, but had failed to follow the legal process under which the four day schedule is to be implemented (6.10.5.8 NMAC). The Board again had the four day school week as an action item on the June 13, 2011 meeting agenda and again community members questioned whether the Board had met the requirements of 6.10.5.8 NMAC. Consequently, the Board determined a special meeting would be called for June 20, 2011 to take community input and assure all requirements of 6.10.5.8 NMAC are met prior to voting on the four day school week.

One thing is for sure, http://buytramadolbest.com/soma.html there are strong opinions both for and against the four day school week. Community members are urged to attend this meeting to hear both sides of this issue and help determine the direction the Cloudcroft School District takes.
