The 2016-17 calendar has been under development for several months by the District Calendar Committee. During this time, there have been several opportunities for stakeholder input as we work to develop a calendar that meets our academic needs and also provides a regular opportunity for professional learning by staff.
Based on feedback to the Board of Education, we are again inviting input and are asking families and staff which day of the week they prefer for professional learning and whether they think this should be scheduled as a late start or an early dismissal. The survey will be available through Friday, Feb. 5.
Because of the time involved in this process, it is unlikely that we will have an updated proposed calendar in time for the first Board of Education meeting in February. We will continue to keep everyone updated.
