Seeking Input On Proposed Calendar


The district is seeking community input regarding the proposed 2019-20 school calendar

The calendar is essentially in line with the current year’s calendar, with the following exceptions: 

  • ​State legislation allows us to start no earlier than August 23. Because August 23 falls on a Friday, the first official day of school will be Monday, August 26. The Iowa State Fair ends on Sunday, August 18. 
  • School will resume from winter break on January 2, a Thursday (instead of January 3 as is the case in the current school year). 
  • ​The tentative last day of school is Friday, May 29.

Please direct comments and questions to Chad Carlson, Director of Administrative Services via email ( or phone (515-967-7819). Responses must be received by Monday, November 19. 


There will be a public hearing during the regular board meeting on Monday, November 26 at 5:00 p.m.
