Added Instruction Days

Added Instruction Days

Overview

On May 8, 2024, the State Board of Education (SBE) approved our District鈥檚 request for a waiver of the penalty for not providing the minimum number of instructional days and minutes during the 2021-2022 school year. 

Approval of the waiver means we will be adding eight (8) instructional days to the 2024-2025 calendar and moving the first day of school to Monday, August 19, 2024. 

Additionally, 8 days will also be added to the beginning of the 2025-2026 school calendar. 

This learning recovery plan, which was created in collaboration with the 茄子视频 City Teachers Association (SCTA), represents a unique opportunity for us to offer more classroom time to meet the academic, social, and emotional learning needs of students. It also enables the district to reinvest approximately $39 million in funding to support teaching and learning that would have otherwise been returned to the state.
