Batavia Schools Fix Curriculum Night, Open House Scheduling Conflicts

The elementary curriculum night sessions will be offered twice and the high-school open house will start later. Read the details here.

Batavia's principals have fixed tonight's Curriculum Night scheduling snafus.

Many of the elementary school sessions, including those held at , , , , will be offered at two different times tonight: one at 5:30 p.m., the other at 6:30 pm.

Over at the , the parents' walkthough of their childrens' schedules will begin at 7 p.m. instead of 6:30 p.m., principal Lisa Hichens said. Those high-school sessions are scheduled to end at 8:30 p.m.

District leaders announced the plan on Tuesday during the School Board meeting after they realized the scheduling conflict earlier in the day.

Before the time switch, an online message went out telling parents to forego the elementary curriculum night for the high-school session. The administrators know that the new schedule still puts parents on a tight timetable, but they are hopeful parents can attend the elementary and high-school sessions instead of having to choose just one.

"We apologize for any inconvenience our error has caused our families," said a district online message sent Tuesday afternoon. "Please be assured that we are working to prevent these types of scheduling conflicts from happening in the future."

Tonight ended up being the ideal night for curriculum night for many schools, including the high school. This is the only night where the school is not hosting an athletic event, Principal Lisa Hichens said at the School Board meeting.

"We believe that changing the dates will create more conflicts," said Jack Barshinger, the district's superintendent.
