The Wake County School Board is proposing to change Vance Elementary's current track 4 calendar to a traditional calendar beginning the 2018/2019 school year.  The Track 4 calendar is working well and has worked well for the students, faculty and parents of Vance Elementary for many years and most of us would like to remain a track 4 year-round school.  Changing the schedule to traditional would create a hardship for some families. Year-round school increases student and staff retention rates and produces higher test scores.  Students and parents in year-round schools also have generally positive feelings towards year-round schooling because the frequent breaks allow them to recharge and reenergize as well!  Track 4 works well for us and we would like to continue with the schedule and family activities that we have planned for upcoming years. We need anyone and everyone to sign this petition in order to help us with this fight!  I urge all Vance Elementary School parents and grandparents that would like to stay Track 4 to join a large group of us on October 3, 2017 at 5:30pm at the Wake County Public School Headquarters on Dillard Drive in Cary, NC and let's make the board KNOW what we WANT!  Please wear your VANCE shirts and show your Panther Pride.  If you don't have a shirt let us know and we can help find you one to borrow! We are also joining forces with Rand Road Elementary, Timber Drive Elementary, and North Garner parents to show that we ALL support our children and want what's best for them! Stay tuned for a local meeting for All Parents of Southern Wake County that are For Track Four!
