Parents of students who attend King Elementary have voted in favor of moving the school to a year-round schedule.
In balloting conducted at the school Monday, 73.5 percent of the parents voted in favor of the schedule, while 26.5 voted in favor of an extended-day schedule. About 46 percent of the estimated 498 households that have children in the area cast ballots, Stephen Whitesides, King principal said.The Davis School Board is scheduled to make a final vote on the plan next Tuesday at a meeting at Davis High. The board will skip a preliminary vote in order to allow the school time to prepare for the scheduling change.
Whitesides said 14 of the school's 25 teachers had previously voted for the year-round plan. If the board gives final approval the school will go to a modified 45-15 schedule to begin July 25. Generally, three "tracks" of students attend school for 45 days and then are off for 15. All students will have July off.
