The Board of Education approved the 2017-18 and 2018-19 district professional calendars at the Jan. monthly meeting.

The USD 385 calendar committee developed the calendar for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school year. The 2017-18 calendar includes 174 student contact days, 9 professional learning days, 3 flex work days and 1 parent-teacher conference day. The 2018-19 calendar includes 173 student contact days, 10 professional learning days, 3 flex work days and 1 parent-teacher conference day. 

In 2015-16 we began offering a daytime parent-teacher conference option. Following conferences last fall, we surveyed parents and staff members, and both stakeholder groups strongly supported the daytime conference option. Therefore, it is included in the proposed 2017-18 and 2018-19 calendars.
