Background on the change to the 2023-24 school calendar
In November 2022, the district calendar committee sought feedback from stakeholders on important items to consider when developing district calendars.
We surveyed for feedback and here is what our community said:
- Nearly 87% of respondents want school to end before Memorial Day.
- 80% of respondents wanted to align days off across all levels.
- 79% of respondents believe it’s important to continue to have finals occur before winter break.
The 2024-25 calendar reflects many of the same changes and can be viewed here.
