The school calendars for 2023-2024 and 2024-2025 are now available online.
In developing these calendars, the District considered input from students and parents/guardians that was shared in the recent strategic plan survey and focus groups. The District also considered feedback from staff in a separate survey.
There are a few notable changes:
- Students will start school before Labor Day. The summer break in 2023 will be shorter than usual to accommodate the earlier start. In 2024, summer break will return to its usual length.
- Students will end school during the second week of June (with the exception of seniors who will end earlier). This change will avoid having students return for one or two days after Juneteenth. It allows for a pause before BSD summer programming begins. Finally, adjusting the whole school year by a week allows for more instructional time for students prior to spring testing including ACT, Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) and state tests.
- The calendars incorporate a full-week break in November around the Thanksgiving holiday.
We hope that publishing these calendars now will allow you and your family time to make any necessary adjustments.
