PUSD Instructional Calendar FAQ – October 2015

Monday, October 12th, 2015 - Posted in All District News District Communications

Over the last five years, the District has conducted several surveys of parents and middle and high school students (in 2011, 2012, and 2015) concerning the school calendar.  The survey results indicate strong support for ending the first semester before the Winter break because this is believed to be in the best interest of students. Nonetheless, there is split opinion about how to accomplish this change.

The District is now exploring alternatives to its current calendar, for possible implementation starting in the 2016-17 school year, to make this change.  For more information on the Instructional Calendar Development Process, as well as recent instructional calendar survey results, please visit the PUSD Instructional Calendar FAQ – October 2015.

This FAQ is intended to provide basic information about the legal and policy considerations that guide development of the instructional calendar, the process for approving the calendar, and the reasons underlying the possible shift in when the first semester ends.
