Washoe School District Asks for Public Feedback on Intersession

By  | 

RENO, NV - The Washoe County School District is looking for feedback on this year's new school schedule.

The week of October 14 marked the first fall intersession for Washoe County Schools. The intersession is part of the new balanced calendar that has been implemented in WCSD for the first time this school year. Now WCSD is asking members of the public for their opinion on the success of this inaugural fall intersession.

“We are hoping to have a lot of parents, students, and staff take the survey,” said Dr. Bryn Lapenta, WCSD senior director of student accounting. “We are looking forward to reading their opinions.”

Results of the survey will be presented to the Washoe County School District Board of Trustees and will be used to guide decisions about school calendars in the future.

The district says intersessions are designed to allow students and staff additional time that can be used to help students get closer to their academic goals. Several schools held special classes during the intersession covering a range of subjects from preparing for Advanced Placement exams to reading camps. Students who did not participate in an intersession class had one week off of school.

The survey is open to students, parents, staff, and community members and will be available through November 4.
