Board Approves 2018-2019 Calendar

Board Approves 2018-2019 Calendar
Posted on 12/14/2017

At the Board of Education meeting last Monday, the district's calendar committee proposed a calendar for the 2018-2019 school year, which was approved. A copy of the approved calendar is available to download below for your reference.

While no calendar meets everyone's needs, the feedback provided by the 300+ survey respondents was instrumental in developing the calendar proposal. Specifically, the committee heard the following feedback, and constructed a response to it:


 

Feedback Response
Built-in professional development days are valued and effective.

Dedicated days for professional development remain in the calendar.

Interrupted weeks are more difficult.

All terms now begin with full weeks.

Early release days are instructionally problematic, despite the high-quality PD provided.

Early release days are eliminated in the calendar.

Two-day parent conferences did not work well. A single specific time for conferences across the district doesn't work for all schools.

Parent-conferences will occur in a set window at each school's discretion - once each semester.

Additional school-based planning time is desired.

PD days are now combined with administrative days to provide time for school-based planning/PD.
