BRANDON-EVANSVILLE โ€” The Brandon-Evansville School Board voted to slightly extend the school year to make up for snow days.

The action was taken at the board's regular meeting on Monday, March 20.

The school year has been extended for students by a full day on June 1, and a half-day on June 2.

Brandon-Evansville teachers will be making up time and doing work for several days the following week.

The school board also heard an update about the district's ongoing expansion project.

District superintendent Louisa Glenetske reported that she recently attended a pre-construction meeting with the contractors, where they went over the timeline to see if there were any issues.

"Procurement looks really good, so everyone's really seeing that they can get the supplies and materials they need on time, which is awesome, because I know that was a big concern of ours," Glenetske said.

If the work goes well, part of the Evansville addition could be utilized as early as August, potentially including one of the classrooms, she said.

Glenetske said the district would like to hold a ground-breaking ceremony at both schools on the tentative date of May 3.
