As previously mentioned, the K-8 Leadership Team finalized the recommendation for next year’s academic calendar. The calendar will be voted on at the March board meeting on Thursday, 3/17. The proposal very closely matches the Atlanta Public Schools’ calendar. We traditionally start school in the middle of the week to give our youngest students a bit of a ramp-up period. In this proposal, the first day of school is a Tuesday; one day later than the rest of the district. To make up for this later start, we will forgo the planning day the district has scheduled in November. The proposed calendar is below for your review.
