We received word this week from the Office of School Accountability & Accreditation that Nettle Creek School Corporation has received the status of a Performance Qualified School District for the 2019-2020 school year. This distinction was earned as a result of NCSC’s A corporation rating.
As a result of this attainment, NCSC has the option to vary the number of days students must attend school in a year. While the number of days can vary, the number of instructional minutes offered students throughout the year must continue to meet state standards. Teachers and administrators will talk this option over and make a recommendation regarding the 2019-2020 school year calendar to the Board of School Trustees for their consideration.
We know parents are very anxious to know next year’s school calendar so they can make family plans. We ask for your patience as we look at the potential for this rare opportunity to serve students at the highest level possible.
