School Board Approves 2007-2008 Calendar

December 19, 2006

The San Angelo ISD Board of Trustees has approved the Official District Calendar for the 2007-2008 school year.

The calendar option presented to the board was chosen based on the results of a survey conducted among citizens of San Angelo. After reviewing more than 50 calendar options that were submitted for consideration, the District Site-Based Decision Making Committee narrowed the options down to four choices that were presented for public voting. SAISD staff, students, and other citizens were given the option to vote for the calendar of their choice via an online survey or by paper ballots located at each campus.

Calendar Option #2 received the majority of the votes with 600 out of 1399 total votes for a percentage of 42.89%. View a full report of the voting results here.
