Santa Claus is giving school administrators in Door and Kewaunee counties a lump of coal to deal with as they start planning the 2019/2020 school year. Christmas Day and New Year’s Day are on Wednesdays next school year, leaving administrators and their boards puzzled on when the best time is to schedule their winter break. School districts like Sturgeon Bay often work on the academic year calendars well in advance to give parents plenty of time to schedule days off and plan vacations. Superintendent Dan Tjernagel says it is a balancing act.
Sturgeon Bay School District will discuss two different academic calendar options and host a public hearing on its budget at their board meeting on Wednesday beginning at 7:00 p.m.
