City Schools of Decatur has postponed approving its calendar for the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 school years to give parents more time to comment.

The School Board tabled approving the calendar for 30 days at its July 8 meeting.

“I know that, believe it or not, people are out there making their plans well in advance,” Superintendent Phyllis Edwards said.

There were several days missed in the 2013-2014 school year due to snow. The Calendar Committee recommended adding four days during the February break in the 2014-2015 school year as makeup days.

The recommended makeup days are:

February 16, 2015
February 17, 2015
February 18, 2015
February 19, 2015

People who have feedback can email it to contact_us@csdecatur.net. Be sure to put “calendars” in the subject line.

The deadline for comments is Aug. 7.

A notice from CSD says the Calendar Committee, “seeks to create balanced semester schedules” of 90 days per semester.

School begins on Aug. 4.
