Baldwin Community Schools may become year-round.
The plan has been worked on since last October by administrators and community members. According to Superintendent Stiles Simmons, the majority of people in the community support the initiative. Simmons says students lose a vast amount of skills and knowledge during break time, such as summer. Under the year-round school calendar, students would attend the same number of days but summer break would be cut in half to six weeks. If the district receives a grant for necessary building upgrades, the new school calendar will start this fall.
