Guided by the input from our community and our interests, the solution-group made the following additions and adjustments to the 2016-17 calendar:
1. Add January 16, Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a full day of instruction
2. Add February 21 as a full day of instruction and move the originally scheduled teacher in-service day to President’s Day, February 20
3. Add April 28 as a full day of school for all grades Note: this is the day that was scheduled for 6th and 8th grade portfolio presentations and kindergarten open house. We will still require 6th and 8th grade portfolios, and principals will work together to find solutions to help 6th and 8th teachers assess the portfolios, reschedule the school tours and reschedule the kindergarten open house
4. Convert the last Wednesday collaboration of each month to instructional time. The following dates will now be full days of instruction for all K-12 students: January 25, February 22, March 22, April 26 and May 24.
