The Valley Center School District announced Tuesday that they have decided to delay debating year-round schooling in light of the recent announcement their Superintendent, Dr. Scott Springston, will take a job in a Kansas City School District.
Valley Center had been considering spreading their school year more evenly across the year, leaving students with a shorter summer break.
“In light of the announcement of Dr. Springston’s resignation, the Valley Center USD 262 board of education is in agreement to postpone discussion regarding a balanced calendar until a time, as yet to be determined, during the 2012-13 school year,” USD 262’s Board of Education said in a statement Tuesday evening.
“The community, staff and board’s attention is best served at this time in developing a comprehensive superintendent search process," the statement continued. "The balanced calendar discussion will not be on the board agenda Monday, February 13th, nor during any future 2011-12 board meetings. Should discussion concerning calendars be reactivated next school year, the community will be made aware well in advance of any board action.”
Springston was named the one and only finalist for superintendent position in the Park Hill school district in Kansas City.
Springston has been in the position at Valley Center since 2006.
