2015-16 School Calendar Finalized

The 2015-16 school year calendar has been finalized. Here are some of the significant changes: 

  • A recent survey showed elementary and middle school families preferred early releases to late starts for teacher collaboration time. The new calendar honors that request by ending late starts and moving to early releases for elementary and middle schools.
  • There will be fewer of these early releases than there were late starts this year. This will present fewer disruptions to learning time and provide larger time blocks for teacher collaboration in elementary and middle schools.
  • There will be more consistency in that all early releases will be a half day.
  • High schools will not have early releases except for Friday, Nov. 13, Friday, Jan. 29 and Friday, June 17 (for grading).
  • The spring elementary conference week has been moved to be right before spring break, much like our neighboring districts.
