CSD wants to hear from you about a proposed school calendar for the 2016-2017 school year.
This calendar is proposed by a District Calendar Committee of 23 parents, teachers and school employees. The committee is proposing to start and end school one week earlier than shown on the school calendar tentatively approved by the Board last year. So, the proposal is to start the school year on Aug. 17, 2016. This proposed change would allow for an additional week of instruction prior to year-end testing. Additionally, the committee took into account state law that students attend school 180 days and 990 hours each academic year, and the desire to provide periodic professional development time for teachers and breaks for families.
The Board of Education would like your feedback on the proposed 2016-2017 academic calendar before its next calendar discussion, scheduled for Nov. 11, 2014. Click on the button below to send us your feedback.
Public feedback will be accepted through Nov. 9, 2014.
