Each year, staff, administration and Board representatives meet to discuss and plan the school calendar. In the last couple of years the state legislature changed the requirement for the length of the school year from specifically “180 student contact days”to allow schools to choose a minimum number of school hours per year instead. While the 2014-2015 calendar includes 180-days, the new legislative rules give schools more flexibility to meet students’ needs without necessarily holding 180-days of class. Please review the following questions and provide your input about structuring the school calendar.

All submissions received on or before 3:30 p.m. on 11/28/2014 will be included in the survey data. The direct link to the survey is below:
