The Brookings-Harbor School District Board of Directors restored the originally adopted 2019-2020 academic calendar at a special meeting on Monday, Feb. 3. This action restores Friday, Feb. 14, to a regular school day with classes in session for all students at Brookings-Harbor High School, Azalea Middle School, and Kalmiopsis Elementary School.
Previously, at a regular school board meeting on Jan. 15, the board approved a calendar change to provide a new professional development day opportunity for teachers and staff. The proposed schedule for the in-service day included the “Rethink Poverty” simulation with a regional training firm in the morning and a slate of other afternoon training sessions led by BHSD staff.
The district will work with the board, school administrators and the Brookings-Harbor Education Association to explore future dates or opportunities to reschedule and experience these training opportunities.
