NORTH JUDSON-SAN PIERRE Few people attended the first public meeting to talk about a major change proposed for the North Judson-San Pierre school calendar.

The district is considered switching to a balanced calendar, which means summer break would be shortened, with longer breaks inserted throughout the year.
The school year would still be 180 days. It would start in August and end in early June. Summer break would be eight weeks, and students would have two-week long breaks, spread out every two months, through the rest of the school year. The changes could be implemented as soon as the 2015-2016 school year.

Despite the impact, only about 20 people were there, according to WKVI. There is another meeting at 7p.m. Thursday at the high school auditorium.
