Calvert County School Board Member Dawn Balinski

A proposal that drew the ire of many in the community over a proposed first day of school is in limbo due in part to a lack of voting members on Calvert’s school board at a meeting last week.

With two members — Antoine White and Jana Post — missing the March 9 vote, the board of education initially voted 2-to-1 to accept the calendar committee’s recommendation for the 2023-2024 school year, which included the first day of school to be Thursday, Aug. 24.
