Bibb County schools are asking parents and students' opinions on next year's academic calendar.

The district is running an online poll on the calendar.

People can say, for example, whether they prefer longer breaks in the fall and winter or a full summer vacation.

They'll also be asked whether it's important to match the school-year calendar to surrounding districts'.

A news release from the school district says the online voting runs through Sunday.

Then the results will be presented to the school board next Monday, Dec. 9, when they meet to discuss the calendar for the next two years.

You can vote in the online survey here.

Earlier this year, the school board discussed a "45-15" calendar, where students would spend nine weeks in school, then have three weeks off. But the board put off the plan because most employees were against it and because it would increase air-conditioning costs.

The school board said they might consider the 45-15 plan for the 2015-2016 school year.
