The School Board approved the 2019-20 School Year Calendar during their meeting on December 13, 2018. The approved calendar can be downloaded in both English and Spanish from the division-level Calendars web page.
The Calendar Committee has created a second draft of the 2019-20 School Year Calendar in response to survey feedback.
The purpose of our recent calendar survey was to collect community input on the Calendar Committee’s first draft of the 2019-20 School Year Calendar. In total, 1,018 students, parents, employees, and community members reviewed the initial draft and provided feedback over a two-week period, from November 2-16. Thank you to everyone who participated for engaging in the calendar development process. View the survey results »
