Londonderry district considering longer school day for fall 2015
One idea being considered is to make the school day 10 minutes longer starting in Fall 2015, Superintendent Nate Greenberg said at Tuesday’s School Board meeting.
Londonderry’s first day of school for the 2014-2015 school year is Aug. 26. A proposal to add 10 minutes to each school day would essentially guarantee Londonderry’s school year would end at a reasonable time.
“I certainly share the frustration with many,” Hendricks said. “We’re not the only district that struggles with this, but I think it’s incumbent upon is to put together a plan that works.”
Friday’s last day of school is still five days earlier than 2009, when the last day of school was pushed to June 25 after a major ice storm forced schools to close for an extended time.
