BALANCED CALENDAR BALANCES EDUCATION
Beech Grove City Schools follows a balanced school calendar and has been following this calendar since the 2012-2013 school year.
Research is very clear that having two and a half months off during the summer creates a learning loss for students. We believe that a more evenly distributed calendar of instruction targets the "brain drain" phenomena that can happen when students are out of school for the more traditional length of summer vacation. Spring, fall and holiday break also provide for additional family and vacation time. The goal of the calendar is to balance the learning opportunities for students throughout the year, so our students can stay engaged all year long. A balanced school calendar has helped us to improve student achievement, behavior, and attendance, which are important goals for our district.
