Thursday, February 24 at 6:30 pm, County Office Building, Room 241
The School Board work session agenda includes two school calendar items:
  1. Approval of the proposed 2011-12 school calendar (available on the ACPS website) and
  2. Discussing calendar considerations for the 2012-13 school calendar.

Each year parents have the opportunity to provide input (pre-calendar committee meetings) and feedback (on proposed calendars). This work session offers a noteworthy opportunity to learn about the many considerations involved in developing the calendar.

For background information, sample calendars from ten other school districts and a white paper on the use of time in schools are available below. See the entire agenda on the Electronic School Board.

From this work session the Board will provide direction to the calendar committee, which will begin work on a draft 2012-13 calendar soon.
