Livingston Parish School Board approves added class time to 2016 Academic Calendar
LIVINGSTON - Revisions to the Livingston Parish Public Schools Academic Calendar were approved Thursday night. The school board voted to add class time due to time missed during the August flood.
Along with the regularly scheduled classes that begin on Sept. 12, additional instruction time has been added. The following days were voted to be changed into full class days:
-Thursday, Sept. 15 (originally a ½ day for teacher professional development)
-Friday, Oct. 7 (originally a Fair Day Holiday; the Livingston Parish Fair has been cancelled)
-Thursday, Oct. 20 (originally a Teacher/Parent Conference Day)
-Wednesday, Nov. 16 (originally a ½ day for teacher professional development)
Assistant Superintendent Stephen Parrill said these are the only changes that will be made as of now.
"These are the only changes we're comfortable making right now, pending our appeal to the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education to waive required instructional minutes," Parrill said.
If any further changes regarding the calendar are needed, they will be made following the BESE's ruling, according to Parrill.
