Marion County has accumulated 16 snow days this school year alone, so the Board of Education decided it was the perfect time to get some community input on next year's school calendar.
Superintendent Gary Price said the BOE provided a sample calendar to parents, teachers, and anyone else involved with the school system so people could voice their opinions and concerns.
"Different people have opinions as to whether or not we should have a spring break or how long it should be, how much time we should have off at Thanksgiving, what kind of a Christmas break we should have," said Price.
"You know, they take a real interest in what their children do in school. And that's the ultimate thing right there is what's best for these kids," said Bill Stalnaker, a teacher at North Marion High School.
Another meeting is set for March 10 at Watson Elementary. It will start at 5 p.m.
