- 2019-2020 School Calendar
Dr. Gordon shared the overview of the proposed calendar and recommendation of the calendar committee. The Calendar Committee considered feedback from the construction management team, FQC, and changes to Illinois School Code that defines the number of school days teachers are required to attend. Due to construction, it will again be important to optimize the time during the summer, without staff or students in attendance, due to the considerable amount of construction occuring in all of our school buildings. Therefore, administration recommended a second “Construction Calendar” for consideration. The Administration will recommend the Board approve the 2019-2020 school year calendar at the January 21, 2019 Board meeting. Click here for the proposed calendar.
