PIERCETON â€” The 2012-2013 school calendar year for Whitko Community School Corporation (WCSC) will change a bit from previous years, according to Superintendent Steve Clason. The first full-day for WCSC students will be Aug. 15 with the last day set for May 23, providing there are no make-up days for weather.
â€śI think this (2012-2013 school calendar) is one of the better calendars we have had,â€ť school board secretary Roger Boggs said at its Board of School Trustees regular monthly meeting Monday evening.
Clason agreed with Boggs, stating the key element is next yearâ€™s school calendar ends prior to the first semester break. â€śThe first semester is over before Christmas break which makes it a lot cleaner for the high school kids,â€ť Clason said.
Graduation for the class of 2013 was also discussed with board vice-president Jorell Tucker talking with a group of Whitley county seniors who are in Leadership Whitley County.
â€śTwo of the seniors brought up graduation planning for area high schools overlapping,â€ť Tucker said. â€śIn planning next yearâ€™s (2013) graduation, I would just encourage collaboration whenever we can with surrounding school systems so it is more equal because this year area graduations are on the same day and just one-half hour between one another.â€ť
