Agenda Item #13
School Year Calendar Standards and the 2015-2016 School Year Calendar
A minor calendar adjustment for the ending date of first semester during 2015-2016 School Year Calendar has been made in light of the increased number of early release days. Tuesday, January 5, 2016 will be changed from the first day of second semester to the last day of first semester. This adjustment allows students participating in one-semester only classes (e.g. PE, American Government, Economics, Sociology) to meet the required minutes without altering current scheduling plans. Please note that this means first semester will now have 88 student days and 95 teacher days. Second semester will now have 92 student days and 95 teacher days. This calendar adjustment would have no impact on the community as January 5, 2016 was already scheduled as a student and teacher day.
