After considering input from
students, families, and employees, the Board of Education has adopted a new
school year calendar for the 2017-18 school year.
Under the new calendar (click here for a full copy), the
school year will begin on Thursday, Aug. 10 for students and end Thursday, May
31, 2018. Teachers will begin the school year with two workdays beginning
Tuesday, Aug. 8 and end with a workday on Friday, June 1, 2018.
There will be no school on Oct.
9; Winter Break will run Thursday, Dec. 21-Jan. 5, 2018; and the District will
maintain a travel day at the end of Spring Break (Monday, April 2, 2018).
The District took into
consideration significant feedback from teachers, staff, families, and students
when recommending the Aug. 10 start date to the Board, including feedback from
students and teachers who preferred a Thursday start.
In addition to public comment at
District meetings, there were more than 4,800 responses to an online survey
from families, staff, and students. The results can be viewed at this link.
Folsom Cordova will continue to
evaluate the impact of the school year calendar on staff, students, and
families and make revisions to best meet the needs of our community.
If you have any
questions, please contact the District at (916) 294-9000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
