First of Kingman school year scheduling meetings ready to go

The first of three town hall meetings to discuss moving Kingman Unified School District students to a year-round school calendar will be at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Kingman High School, 4182 Bank St.

The district governing board is considering moving from a traditional 180-day school calendar to a 45 days on and 10 days off calendar. Under the new calendar, students would have a two-week break in both the spring and fall and would lose a week of summer vacation. The board is hoping to collect comments from the public at the three town hall meetings. The second meeting is at 6 p.m. Thursday at White Cliffs Middle School, 3550 Prospector Ave.

The last meeting is at 6 p.m. Jan 7 at Hualapai Elementary School, 350 Eastern St.

Once again, kusd is trying to ramrod the parents into believing that year round school is what's best for our children. Two weeks of tutoring to catch students up who have not gotten it in a 9 week session? Please...

Again, Cerbat Elementary School did this back in, I believe, the school year of 2004-05. As a parent I loved the schedule & as said before on another article, if a child isn't getting what they are being taught, they get tutoring during the 2 weeks they are off.
Some may say that this is cruel to the children that have to come in during those 2 weeks off, but during the time they are in regular session, would it not be cruel to the rest of the class to have to wait for the teacher to explain it to this one child?
Also something I don't understand, I came from California 13 years ago. In California they told us it was a Federal program that would give schools more money if the schools kept classes at a maximum of 20 students. Most classes are over 30 students in KUSD, maybe the year round schedule would help this if there were two schedules, as long as all students in one family are on the same schedule.
