180 days of school to go.
90 days of school to go.
50 days...25 days...10 days.
Last day of school!
The countdown to the last day of school has been an annual ritual of students probably since formal schooling began. And while, as an educator, I like to focus on the days between a starting date in August and an ending date in May, I can certainly understand the excitement over the end of the school year. The chance to sleep in, go a few months without homework or tests, and have a sense of freedom is something that we all long to experience.
EASTLAND-FAIRFIELD ANNOUNCES NEW HIRES AT CAREER CENTERS
Eastland-Fairfield Career & Technical Schools will open the 2021-22 school year with a new position to serve its students at the district level and multiple new hires in leadership positions.

Matthew McGregor has been selected to become Fairfield Career Center’s new director, and Holly Griffin has been hired as Eastland Career Center’s second assistant director.
