01-19-2016 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #28


Title
School Year Calendar Standards and the 2016-2017 School Year Calendar

Discussion
The calendar draft for 2016-17 was made in accordance with HB 7069, which requires that the first day for students shall not be prior to August 10th. The calendar was vetted with representatives from elementary school, middle school, high school and district personnel including parents of current BPS students serving on the following committees: Calendar Committee, PDEC and Jr. Staff. Revisions in the school year Calendar Standards have been made to reflect changes in the proposed calendar. After further discussion with Brevard Federation of Teachers, the 2016-17 calendar will reflect five (5) days of preplanning with the first day for teachers on August 3, 2016. Please note that there will also be a teacher planning day on March 17, 2017.

Recommendation
Approve the 2016-17 school year calendar.
