Summary : The Calendar Committee, comprised of District leaders, teachers, classified staff members and parents, worked to develop four (4) conventional calendar options for the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 school years. A survey was developed and distributed to staff and parents of neighborhood schools. The survey received 10,511 responses. Additionally, feedback was received from the Student Advisory Group. The Calendar Committee presented to the District Accountability Committee on October 13, 2020 and, based on the feedback, recommended that Calendar Option A be approved. The District Accountability Committee approved calendar option A.
