PEORIA (WEEK) -- A 'balanced calendar' had been proposed for Peoria Public Schools to make up for COVID-19 learning loss, but now the school board pushed it back by a year.
The proposed schedule would be during the 2022-2023 school year instead of this coming fall.
The district said the plan would ensure students had met grade level requirements, provide academic support and a continuation of classroom practices.
Under the proposed balanced calendar, summer break would be shortened to 30 days instead of 60. Fall, winter and spring break would each be three weeks.
The plan is only a proposal at this time. The district said a vote is expected in April of 2021.
