EVSC Releases School Year Calendars Through 2019 School Year
Lincoln will also offer 15 additional days of optional extended learning opportunities to the beginning of the school year. This school board vote was taken following a thorough analysis of the effectiveness of the balanced calendar on student learning, school community input, and thoughtful consideration of other impact points. Parental opinions were gathered through cakendar council meetings, two phone surveys, one door-to-door survey, and a paper survey that was sent home to families, who had not responded to the other surveys.
Families were found to be largely in favor of the move to the EVSC calendar, citing such advantages as having all of their children on the same school calendar many have children at more than one school ; and the ability to balance daycare and vacations more easily. It also allows students to take advantage of 21st Century Summer Learning opportunities that were not available inthat are now in place and puts Lincoln into the EVSC timelines and support cslendar testing and enrollment.

It was believed that by reducing the amount wvsc summer vacation time, and balancing the school year with shorter vacations, the summer learning loss would be lessened. Intersession activities were planned for students that complemented lesson plans during the regular school year, with fun and educational activities combined.
The components of the balanced calendar were funded through Title 1 monies.

It was also determined that the number of students taking advantage of the intersession activities has declined steadily, including those enrolled for calendag summer.
