Parent Teacher Conferences/Conferencias de padres y profesores
The School Board, on February 1st, unanimously passed a resolution authorizing England School District to submit a request for an Act 1240 waiver for an early start date for the 2024-25 school year.
Arkansas law says the first day of school shall be on or after the Monday in which Aug. 19 falls, not earlier than Aug. 14 or later than Aug. 26. For the 2024-25 school year, Aug. 19 falls on a Monday. Act 1240 of 2015 allows districts to seek waivers of state laws and rules.
The resolution says an early start date during the week of Aug. 12 would provide more instructional days prior to state testing in the spring and would balance the required days per semester so that first-semester exams are before Christmas break.
The district is asking ESD stakeholders to fill out a survey about the proposal, one of the requirements for a waiver request, so the board can make an informed decision about the start of school this fall.

Cindy Jones and Stephanie Beams with Lonoke County Safe Haven were at England High School today talking to 10-12 grade about safe dating practices. Prevention is a huge part of protection. If students can learn to recognize abusive behaviors, they can learn to set boundaries and keep themselves safe.
