The ISD166 school board has voted to try a different calendar for the 2012-13 school year. Cook County Schools – and consequently students at Great Expectations – will experience longer days, a number of four-day weeks and some combined additional vacation times. 

The administration says the move saves money and improves instruction. If you have kids in school, what do you think?
Join Jay Andersen with WTIP’s First Thursday Community Conversation for the May 3rd broadcast of “Hybridizing the School Year.”

Each month we choose a topic for discussion, invite guests into the studio and invite you to join in the conversation. This month our guests include Superintendent Beth Schwarz, Great Expectation’s Administrator Peter James and teacher Jane Gellner.

“Hybridizing the School Year” -- First Thursday Community Conversation, only on WTIP North Shore Community Radio.
