Calendar Development and Heat Mitigation Efforts
Although we are certainly experiencing cooler weather now, I have not forgotten about the unusually hot temperatures we experienced in August. I am concerned about the discomfort some students and employees experienced on the hottest days during the first three weeks of school.
In response to inquiries received from parents and staff, I gathered information about calendar development and heat mitigation which I presented to the Board of Education at the Sept. 13 regularly scheduled meeting. Click here for a full outline of my presentation to the board.
Camera Reporter Amy Bounds wrote an informative article about my presentation, which is available on the Camera website.
I am now working with staff on a proposal which will include heat mitigation strategies and minor changes to the 2012-13 calendar which I will present to the Board this fall. I welcome your comments or suggestions on the topic. Please email me at superintendent@bvsd.org
Thank you,
Bruce Messinger
