Calendar, speaking policy, SROs among Nottoway issues

The Nottoway School Board tomorrow night (Thursday) is scheduled to vote on a proposed calendar that will begin the 2020-21 school year one week later than the current year’s.

The Board last month approved a First Reading of the proposed calendar, which would have schools open for students on Wednesday, Aug. 19th. That’s considerably later than the Monday, Aug. 8th opening date last Summer.

Under the proposed calendar, the last day of school would be June 1, 2021, and graduation would be held June 5th.

A second reading of the proposed calendar -- and adoption -- is set for tomorrow (Thursday, Feb. 12th). The Board’s regular monthly meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. in the high school mini-auditorium.

Can Sign-Up At Meeting

The Board, which includes three freshman members, also will vote tomorrow on a new policy that would eliminate a requirement that citizens must register to speak at meetings at least five working days in advance. That policy dates to 2004 and was implemented under the administration of then-Supt. Dr. Gwen Edwards.
