The board approved the proposed 2017-18 academic calendar. New features of this calendar include:
- Introduction of “teal” days — a combination of the already flexible blue/green days, these district-run, professional learning days are scheduled for Aug. 15, Oct. 27 and Feb. 2.
- Last day of school — set as Thursday, May 31, to allow students to end on a Thursday (the last full day of school) and give teachers a full non-contact day to complete/submit grades, etc.
- Student contact day — added on Thursday, Dec. 21 to ensure new school end date of Thursday, May 31 is not impacted.
- Parent/Teacher Conference Day — addition of a designated day in the second semester on Feb. 20. Schools can change date to meet the needs of their communities.
