The first day of school will be Aug. 16, a week earlier than the 2012-2013 school year. The last day of the school year will be May 27 if there are no snow days.
The calendar shift means the first semester, including final exams, will end before the district's winter break. High school students currently take their final exams after winter break.
School holidays would include Labor Day (Sept. 2), Columbus Day (Oct. 14), Veterans’ Day (Nov. 11), Martin Luther King’s birthday (Jan. 20), Presidents’ Day (Feb. 17), Pulaski Day (March 3), Good Friday (April 18), and Memorial Day (May 26).
Thanksgiving break would be Nov. 27-29, winter break from Dec. 23 through Jan. 5 and spring break from April 7 to April 13.
A calendar committee recommended the 2013-2014. Certified and classified staff from all grade levels and parents were part of the committee.
VVSD Assistant Superintendent Rachel Kinder told School Board members Monday night that portions of the calendar could be subject to change pending the outcome of ongoing negotiations with the district’s teachers union.
