Most students will return to classrooms next school year on Wednesday, August 19 under the District calendar approved by the District 50 Board of Education. You can see the calendar below.
Staff will return to work on August 12th with new teachers beginning their Teacher Orientation Program on August 5th. New teachers in the District arrive a week early so they can receive intensive instruction in the District’s Competency Based System.
The start dates begin mid-week in response to a recommendation from the committee that creates the calendar. Committee members determined that after a long summer break, the first week back is more productive if staff and students transition with a shorter first week.
Next year’s winter holiday runs from December 21st to January 4th. Spring break is the week of March 28th.
Students will be in school 173 days, which is comparable to surrounding school districts.
Hidden Lake High School and Colorado STEM Academy have slightly different calendars which can be accessed here.
