DECATUR, Ga. -- The DeKalb County School District is considering a new school calendar that would include early dismissals every Wednesday.
Parents are being encouraged to vote online for one of three proposed calendars for the 2012-2013 school year.
All three calendars call for classes to end one hour earlier on Wednesdays.
One of the options is a modified school calendar that would start on August 1st. It would include four one-week breaks during the school year, with a two-week break at Christmas.
The proposals were developed by a calendar committee, formed at the request of DeKalb Schools Superintendent Dr. Cheryl Atkinson.
The committee included parents, teachers, principals, district office staff, and community partners.
