Changes to the 2009-10 BCSD Calendar

After the Baldwinsville Central School District's 2009-2010 calendar went to print, the New York State Department of Education issued new dates for ALL state assessments (ELA, math, social studies and science) for the 2009-2010 school year. The new dates have affected the calendars of many school districts in the state since many had finalized their calendars for 2009-2010 when the new test dates were announced.
