Proposed 2023-2024, 2024-2025 Calendar Revisions, Public Comment

The District is proposing revisions to the school calendars for the 2023-2024 and 2024-2025 school years. The proposed calendar changes are aimed at providing time for packing and unpacking while prioritizing student instructional time, family needs and the need for staff professional learning. Additional, optional times for packing, moving and unpacking related tasks will also be provided for interested staff.
Public comments will be considered by the District prior to adoption of the proposed revised calendars at the Board Work Session on Tuesday, April 16, 2024, in compliance with the 30-day waiting period following the public hearing.

To help families review the proposed changes, highlights include:

  • PreK-8 faculty/staff will be provided professional days on June 6 and 7 for packing of classrooms and work spaces and for clerical tasks.
  • District DEI Professional Learning Day will take place August 14, 2024.
  • January 6, 2025, will be a regular student instructional day. The professional day originally scheduled on that date will be moved up to August 15, 2024. All staff and faculty would report on August 15 instead of August 16. 
  • The 2024-2025 school year would end one day earlier in order to maintain 173 student days and 185 staff days, which is the same number of staff and student days pre- and post-revision.
