Snow Day Makeup Announcement

The last day of school for the 2013-14 school year will be June 16 for students and June 17 for teachers.  At one time our auditors thought that we only needed to make up minutes, but the state has overruled that and we must make up three days.  A district calendar showing the additional days of school is on our website.  Oakwood Elementary must add 8 minutes to the day since they had an additional lost day due to a power outage.  You will hear from Ms. Spann on how that will be done.

From the present until June 1:  No change in the calendar for any students or teachers.

Your Voice!

your-voiceLast week, the Brandon School District launched 'Your Voice' on the district web site. 'Your Voice' is an opportunity for you to share your thoughts and ideas about the Brandon schools with school personnel. We've all had an idea about something without knowing what to do with it. Now you can go to 'Your Voice' and be sure your message will be directed to the appropriate person or department. If you request a response, you will be called or emailed depending on your selected preference.

We realize there are a lot of great ideas about our school district—this is a great way for you to share yours. We also understand there can be questions that, left unanswered, can lead to unnecessary frustration. This is the place to get your questions answered if you're not sure where to ask.

Take a moment and get to know the 'Your Voice' section of our site. We think you will like it.
