The Hamilton School School Board approved last week the framework for the 2013-14 school year calendar.
The district calendar will consist of 180 student contact days, 192 teacher contract days, typical break periods for holidays and early release days for professional development.
According to the district's web site, the parameters have the "same considerations that have been in place for years when calendars were negotiated between the School Board and teachers’ association."
Collective bargaining reform prohibits the negotiation between school districts and teachers union in terms of the calendar.
Administrators will glean input from parent groups and instructional leadership as they finalize the calendar, the Web site says.
"Administrators are exploring two options for the timing of Spring Break. One keeps it the week after Easter, and the other moves it to mid-March. In addition, additional summer learning academies may be offered," the district's site said.
The school board is expected to take action on the calendar in January.
