LEAP Looks at Innovations in Education

LEAP Looks at Innovations in Education

From Loudoun County Public Schools:

The Loudoun Education Alliance of Parents (LEAP) will explore a variety of educational innovations at its Wednesday, January 12th, meeting.

Addressing the diverse needs of a growing population could well require developing new educational methods or building upon those already in place in our schools. For example, how can we augment the use of technology in schools and homes? Are there existing programs elsewhere that Loudoun could use to supplement its offerings? Are there new educational models on the horizon?

LEAP will "open the doors" at 7 p.m. to offer parents, administrators, and guests an opportunity for informal discussion. The formal meeting begins at 7:30pm.

In 2011, Loudoun County Public Schools Will Resume Before Labor Day

Yesterday, the Loudoun County School Board adopted a 2011-2012 calendar that provides for Loudoun County Public Schools to begin the week before Labor Day.

In September, Dr. Ed Hatrick, Superintendent for Loudoun County Public Schools, told School Board members that he intended to open schools before Labor Day for the 2011-2012 school year. And after seeking parent, student, and staff input, the School Board voted unanimously to adopt a new calendar. As a result, students will begin the new school year on August 28, 2011, and conclude the school year on June 8, 2012. They will have typical Thanksgiving, winter, and spring breaks.
