2020 - 2021 School Calendar
Cedar Rapids Community School District will maintain the originally adopted calendar for the 2020-2021 school year, with classes beginning August 24, 2020. The decision was based on two main factors:
The Governor’s proclamation allows for schools to start before August 23rd, but only to add days to the calendar. The additional contract for employees would exceed our foreseeable budget.
Our district will create plans to support students returning to learn in as many scenarios as possible. The original school year start date will allow for additional public health recommendations and, hopefully, better circumstances to have students return.
