Board to Approve School Calendar at April 20 Meeting

The Ankeny Board of Education will vote on a 2015-2016 school calendar at their Monday, April 20 regular meeting.  After the state sent legislation regarding the school start date to the Governor on March 31, the Board reviewed several options for the calendar at their next regular meeting, held April 6.  They could not, however, approve the calendar at that meeting, as there is a requirement to first hold a public hearing, which was scheduled for April 20. 

“Metro school districts have been considering the day of the week on which to start, especially for younger students, as well as the length of winter break and other factors that affect the end date of school,” said Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Bruce A. Kimpston.  “The Board will be voting Monday and a calendar will be posted as soon afterward as possible.”

Reminder: Classes to be in session April 24; snow make-up day
Due to classes being cancelled for inclement weather on January 7, Ankeny Schools will use the April 24 “Built in Snow Day” shown on the district calendar to make up the missed day.  Instead of being a day off from school, regular classes will be in session and students will attend school on Friday, April 24.
