Agenda Item #35
School Year Calendar Standards
Two standards used to create the school year calendar should be revised as a result of changes in Florida Department of Education practice or policy.
Standard VI A (3) should be revised to reflect the fact that there are no longer state-identified State Inservice Days during the second week in October. The change will identify this day exclusively as a district professional development day/student holiday.
Standard VI B (3) should be revised to reflect the fact that the state no longer sets or monitors the maximum number of school days graduating seniors can miss prior to the end of the school year for graduation ceremonies.
For consistency throughout the School Year Calendar Standards, the word year has been added in Section II, Definition and in Standard VI B (3).
Hold a public hearing to approve the revisions to the School Year Calendar Standards.
