Next Year's Academic Calendar Board Approved
January 30, 2023
During their January 23 meeting, school board members held a public hearing and reviewed staff and community input regarding the draft 2023-24 school calendar. In response to the feedback received, school board members supported recommended amendments and approved the calendar pending those updates.
Many of the comments received were in regards to the last day of school and the possibility of releasing students prior to the Memorial Day holiday. With state law prohibiting schools from starting prior to August 23 each year, it can be a challenge to conclude the school year prior to Memorial Day while also allowing time for required professional development, holidays, and breaks. To accomplish this goal for the 2023-24 school year, the following updates have been made:
- November 3, 2023: Professional Development (No school for students)
- November 6, 2023: Regular school day with a typical 2pm dismissal
- May 24, 2024: Last day of school with a 1pm dismissal
Thank you to those who provided feedback. This continues to be helpful in identifying and prioritizing changes. We appreciate your assistance in this process!
