Richland 2: Mid-winter break in calendar next year

Jan 25, 2011 7:47:00 PM - thestate.com
Richland 2 is experimenting with a new calendar for the 2011-12 academic year that includes a week-long mid-winter break in February and a slightly earlier start date in August.

The board decided to extend the three-day President’s Day weekend to a whole week, to provide a breather for students and faculty slogging through the three-month period between winter break and spring break, said board chairwoman Stephanie Burgess.

The week-long break is set for Feb. 20-24.

That’s when some discipline issues commonly erupt, she said, so the holidays “give them a break to kind of decompress before they come back.”

Burgess, who works at USC, said the university provides such a break and it is welcomed. “Everyone is so tired by that point,” she said.
