Board votes to end late-arrival Mondays

June 14, 2018 -- The Arkport Board of Education voted June 13 to eliminate late-arrival Mondays on the 2018-19 school district calendar. 

The practice of scheduling late-arrival Mondays was designed to provide a regular time for teachers to collaborate and for the administration to hold meetings and provide professional development training. Recognizing the burden this policy placed on parents who had to arrange an extra hour of day care once a week, the Board voted to replace late Mondays with monthly half-days during the 2018-19 school year.
