Eau Claire School Board approves new school calendar


EAU CLAIRE (WQOW) -- Eau Claire students will be spending extra time in the classroom next year due to a scheduling change that was approved by the school board Monday night.

The elementary school schedule will not change, but middle schools will see 19 more minutes in the classroom and high schools will have 12 minutes added on.The district also set a firm end date of June 3.

The calendar gives teachers four days of prep and nine days of professional development, something the district says will allow for better student achievement.

"Through that professional development we are enhancing our instruction practice,” President of the Eau Claire Association of Educators Mark Goings said. "But more importantly we are enhancing the educational experience for those 10,000 on every single minute that they spend in this district."
