School year wont end early
Placeholder Image
Summer vacation won’t start early this year.Amid rumors the Warren County School System would end the school year a few days early, incoming Director of Schools Bobby Cox said the full calendar will be completed with the last day still next Friday, May 25.“We may look at converting some regular school days to professional development days in the future, but it’s too late in the game to do anything this year,” said Cox. “Kindergarten graduation is coming up Thursday night and a lot of things are happening at the end of the year so we’re not going to be able to do it this year.”The talk of converting school days to professional development days started because Warren County has nine bad weather days stockpiled. The school system started the year with 11 and because of an extremely mild winter only used two of them.Cox said there was correspondence with the Tennessee Commissioner of Education to see about converting stockpiled bad weather days into teacher development days.
