The Jefferson City Board of Education will vote to approve next year’s school calendar, which includes a 70-minute early dismissal almost every Monday.

The Board meeting is set for 6 p.m. at the Miller Performing Arts Center.

The change would mean Elementary students would dismiss at 1:35, middle school at 2:40 and high school at 2:30.

The Jefferson City School District has collected feedback from staff and principals about the changes to the calendar.

According to the district’s FAQ sheet on the issue, the change would decrease students in seat learning by 1.8 percent. It would increase teacher’s development time by 36 percent.

As for child care, the district says The Boys & Girls Club and YMCA are planning to provide after-school care on weekly early release days.

The district says the time would allow for collaboration across the district so teachers and staff members can work together and strategize for students.
