FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO) – Southwest Allen County Schools will implement a fall break into their 2020-2021 school year.
Classes will begin on August 5, but as a result, students and most of the faculty and staff will have off the first full week of October.
SACS officials asked for community input before Tuesday night’s meeting and received a mixed response.
About 59 percent of parents preferred the traditional calendar school year, but teachers and current students preferred the fall break option.
Both calendars include the required 180 days of instruction per year.
