Wednesday Sept 25, Salisbury Central School, Sharon Center School and North Canaan have changed to an early dismissal day( a half day) to accommodate training of teachers set up by the Assistant Superintendent in conflict with the regular school schedule. Kent Center School and the Housatonic are not participating on that date. In Kent the Kent Board of Education is allowing students to be dismissed for a half-day so teachers can attend professional development but the principal was not sure exactly what day it will be. Principal Florence Budge requested the authorization last Thursday for early dismissal for Sept. 20 or Sept. 30. She said she had asked Assistant Superintendent Diane Goncalves for an alternate date for the presentation on the “student learning objectives,” which are part of the new teacher evaluation system. The rest of the region is training on Sept. 25 and that is not a good date for Kent Center School, Budge said.
