District wants input on 7-period days

Posted on March 9, 2017 by From Staff Reports

The Santa Rosa County School District wants the public’s input on their proposal to switch back to 7-period days.
Santa Rosa County Schools Superintendent Tim Wyrosdick brought up the recommendation at a January Greater Navarre Area Chamber of Commerce breakfast.
The move would add 30 minutes to the day for elementary and high school students during the 2017-2018 school year. Teachers would continue working 7 1/2-hour days.
The shift back to a seven-period day would cost roughly $3 million, according to Wyrosdick.
The school district converted to 6-period days during the recent recession to cut costs.
The district has set up a survey online to get public input on the proposal. The survey can be found at: http://selectsurvey.santarosa.k12.fl.us/TakeSurvey.asp?SurveyID=3JM683L25p8KG.
