|BOE approves 2016-17 district calendar|
Posted Date: 02/09/2016
The Board of Education approved the 2016-17 district professional calendar at the Feb. monthly meeting.
The USD 385 calendar committee developed the calendar for the 2016-17 school year. In 2015-16 we began offering a daytime parent-teacher conference option. Following conferences this fall, we surveyed parents and staff members, and both stakeholder groups strongly supported the daytime conference option. Therefore, it is included in the proposed 2016-17 calendar. The calendar includes 173 student contact days, 10 professional learning days, 2 parent-teacher conference days, and 3 flex work days.
