The start time for high school students was not addressed in the calendar development process.


The district’s calendar development process begins in the fall and includes a collaborative process that involves feedback from a cross section of stakeholders, such as parents, teachers, staff, interested community members and students. Input from these groups then go to the District Calendar Committee, which is made up of community members, a Board of Trustee representative, teachers, students, plus campus and district leaders. The committee designs draft calendars that are presented to all parents and staff in a survey.  All feedback is then used to select a calendar version to present to the Board. At Monday night’s meeting, Trustees approved it unanimously.
