Year-round school calendar not of interest

The Sunnyside School Board at this past Wednesday's summer retreat didn't hold much of a discussion regarding the possibility of establishing a year-round calendar.

Sunnyside Schools Superintendent Dr. Rick Cole said the school district studied the idea of conducting classes year-round, but decided it wouldn't be beneficial to the district.

"I could show you examples of it working really well and I could show you examples of it failing," he said of other school districts that have implemented all-year calendars.

Cole said the year-round calendar was on the retreat agenda at the suggestion of a state official.

No further discussion ensued.
