BICS Building Project Changes School Calendar

In a push to get the new building project under way, the Beaver Island Community School Board of Education has voted to change the school calendar. This change in calendar is possible by making a change to the school schedule. On Mondays, students are normally dismissed at 2 p.m. allowing teacher inservice time. From this Monday, April 21, 2008, until May 19, 2008, students will continue to go to class until 3:15 p.m. to complete some State of Michigan required hours of instruction. This will allow the school year to come to a close earlier than previously scheduled.

According to the information published by the BICS, the last day of school will be May 30, 2008. Below is the schedule of events for the rest of this school year as published by BICS.
