- I don't think Vladovic and Cortines should just support this calendar change just because the principals support it for educational reasons? (I'm skeptical about that anyway.) WHAT ABOUT PARENTS AND FAMILIES? Shouldn't we be considered in the equation? Dang, Camp Whittle at the YMCA was the week of August 14th through the 21st last summer. That is about the highlight of the summer for my boys for years. What about stuff like that? I simply hate this idea. I also agree with you one thousand percent about testing.....don't even get me STARTED! It's absolutely out of control and ridiculous. The overemphasis on standardized testing is ruining schools. I could go on and on but I'll spare you! -

For high school kids, there is more opportunity to take summer college classes and camps. My kids always missed out on certain summer programs because the schedules were aligned with an August to end of May/early June school schedules. The parent who fears her children missing out on certain activities for one transitional summer should take heart that this change will open up more summer opportunities in future years.
