Senate Bill 50 designates an 11 member calendar committee to work together to establish the school calendar. The bill does not mandate a later school year start date. A school district’s decision would be voluntary and districts would keep local control of their school calendar.
This committee will work through November to create a 2018-2019 calendar recommendation to the superintendent and the school board. It is anticipated the first reading will be at the board meeting in November or December. Two years ago, the Board designated the second week in October for Fall Break and the first week in April as Spring Break. We will keep you updated through social media as the committee progresses.
Just an FYI – the 11 member calendar committee is a principal, a district office admin., a board member, 2 parents, an elementary teacher, a middle school or high school teacher, 2 classified employees, and 2 community members
