2018-2019 School Calendar

Nearly 300 individuals participated in the calendar development process this year! We are thankful so many of you took the time to share your thoughts and valuable input with us. 
Unlike the development of the 2017-2018 school calendar, when the feedback received could not be incorporated into a single calendar and two options were given to the community for a vote; this year, after careful review of the comments, concerns, and questions received, the District was able to accommodate changes into a single proposed calendar which was adopted by the Board of School Directors during the February 15th Board Meeting.
