I don't know if they have a say in it. I know in many towns they don't. Its simply decided by the board of ed. Many towns did away with February vacation this year, permanently. I've never heard why.
No you are

It's been done in the past. I guess it's up to the towns BOE to decide if they wnat to work February vacation or til the end of June. Either way the days have to be made up. So far Fairfield is tacking them onto the end of the year.

Milford already cancelled it. It's going to be Monday off only, because of the federal holiday, and then school the rest of the week. They're also taking away 2 days of the spring break in April.

School staff are not very happy losing vacation days.
My family agree with the decision.

I just had the same conversation. All you need to do is add up people!

No child left behind is terrible just terrible. Kids aren't being taught anymore. Just how to pass a test. Teachers hate NCLB.
