District calendar changes inbound in April
Due to the extreme number of snow days, the Bettendorf Community School District has made calendar changes to prevent students from being in school till the middle of June.
The BCSD has had eight snow days, and three early outs or late starts due to freezing rain, snow, or cold.
Every day in the fourth quarter will start earlier at 8:10 rather than 8:20. Also, five planned Wednesday early outs have been changed to full class days: April 24, May 1, 8, 15, and June 5. However, April 10, 17 and May 22 and 29 will still be early outs. Two early out final days have also been changed to full class days on April 3 and June 5. With these changes, the last day of school for students will be June 6, a day after it was initially planned.
Third quarter ends on April 3, and, unlike most final days, it is not an early out, but a full day of class. Fourth quarter then begins on April 4, instead of April 1 as the schedule originally planned. Another change is May 10, which is now a full school day instead of a no school day.
The schedule is available to view on the school website here.
