This is the image for the news article titled Superintendent's Proposed 2020-2021 School Calendar

The Superintendent's proposed calendar for the 2020-2021 school year is currently open for public comment. The Superintendent's proposed calendar was developed by a committee comprised of parents, teachers, support employees, and administrators. The committee reviewed a number of possible calendar configurations and gathered feedback from school staff and PTOs.

The Superintendent's proposed calendar will go before the school board for first reading on November 4th.

One of the big decisions that faced the committee this year was whether or not to start before labor day.  After gathering feedback and discussing the options the committee chose to propose a pre-labor day start calendar.
