Parents and teachers met for a round table discussion on the proposed changes to the school calendar for the 2014 school year.

The board of education is looking at having a year-round school policy that would mean more frequent breaks through the year and a month-long summer break.

They say they want to get public opinion on ways to improve the education system.

Parents and students gathered around tables in work sessions with school members to give their ideas and learn about the new proposal.

"I think it weighs on the board members deciding whether this is going to impact student achievement that's kind of where we are and what we look for and once we make that decision we'll work out some of those issues," Superintendent William Smith said.

Other meetings are scheduled for next month.
