In light of the extended school closure, we are making updates to the district school year calendar at both the elementary and the secondary levels. These adjustments are necessary to give students and teachers the time to provide closure to this very unusual school year.
District school year calendar updates for the secondary level (middle schools and high school):
- Instruction of any new content via distance learning will continue through Friday, May 15. This is the last day any assignments will be due for any new content in the fourth quarter.
- During the week of May 18-22, students will declare if they want letter grades or the pass / incomplete option. This will also be a catch-up week for students who have incompletes and any students who wish to refine / enhance their work to improve for the fourth quarter. Students who have incompletes will have until May 22 to make up any assignments and submit them. Teachers will be working closely with these students during this time — we will do everything we can to support students in completing their work.
- Following the Memorial Day holiday on May 25, teachers will spend the remainder of that week closing out the 2019-2020 school year, preparing for the 2020-2021 school year and participating in professional learning.
As a reminder, we will be sharing the format for students choosing letter grades or pass / incomplete with families on or before May 1, 2020.
