Newkirk Board of Education members approved a new school calendar and bell schedule at a special meeting Friday.

The school day will now run from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. daily, five more minutes than last school year but students will attend two less days during the school year.

In the new calendar, school will start August 11, the last day will be May 12th. NHS seniors will graduate on May 13.

Also, board members met 15 minutes in executive session to discuss the high school principal position and as well as the Federal Program Coordinator, Special Education Director, Transportation Director, Gear-Up Director, and Athletic Director position but took no action on hiring a new principal or reassigning current principal Dr. Maurisa Pruett.

The administrative position came open when Patty Stanley resigned last Monday night.
