Most Pleasanton parents/students FAVOR new calendar options

Regarding the proposed calendar, feedback to the district has been mostly positive and very few people showed up to voice any concerns at the recent school board meeting where the calendar was discussed. Studies have shown various benefits from a modified schedule. The schedule will not dramatically improve education, but studies have shown students have a better attitude and those have resulted in a decrease in absenteeism and decrease in discipline issues. The high schools may see more benefit than the elementary but there is really no negative side to any level.
