Henry County schools to consider alternate schedule

Paris, TN – Two west Tennessee school systems will consider moving to an alternate school calendar. The Henry County School System and the Paris Special School District will each form five-member committees to study the pros and cons of a changing the school cycle. The alternate schedule would have school in session in nine-week blocks, giving students two-week breaks in the fall, winter, and spring. Henry County Director of Schools Rick Kriesky (CRY-skee) tells the Paris Post-Intelligencer he's excited to take the matter into consideration, but doesn't know if the system's schedule will change.
