ELLIJAY, Ga. – Gilmer County’s School System is ready for the 2019-20 school year as it ended one of the longest processes it undergoes in preparation: the system calendar.
As with every year, the school calendars have been prepared by each school and put to vote from the public as a whole to decide the actual school calendar. This year, Gilmer Middle School’s proposed calendar won the vote with 49.8 percent of the total 1,725 votes cast.
GMS has actually had the winning calendar for the second year in a row now. Based on the traditional 180 days for students, the calendar will serve as the basic skeleton for all school activities and functions.
Calendar 1 from Gilmer High School’s Calendar received 10.6 percent of the vote.
Calendar two from Ellijay Primary School received 17.97 percent of the vote.
Calendar three from Clear Creek Middle School received 7.3 percent of the vote.
Calendar five from Ellijay Elementary School received 3.36percent of the vote.
Calendar six from Mountain View Elementary received 11.3 percent of the vote.
The calendar is as follows:
ELLIJAY, Ga. – With a few changes in details sparked from a recent state committee wanting state control over calendars, the Gilmer BOE is moving forward with its annual community vote.
Citizens are encouraged to visit the Gilmer County Charter School System website in order to participate in a vote over six possible calendars created by the schools in our county.
As educators and administrators have spent the last few months considering and creating the calendars up for the vote, Superintendent Dr. Shanna Downs said they have actually identified which school created the calendar this year.
She said in February’s work session that she hopes this furthers peoples’ understanding that these options are not just thrown together, but planned and meticulously built by the schools for the school’s and student’s needs.
Downs is asking citizens to “Please review each of the calendars carefully, vote for the calendar of your choice, and remind others to vote as well.” The survey will be posted until March 8. After that, the results will be presented at the March 18 work session.
