 Academic Calendar Development

The WSISD District Planning Committee (DPC), which consists of teachers, administrators, parents, community members and other school employees, developed the Proposed 2020-21 District Academic Calendar.  Parents and staff members were encouraged to provide input regarding the proposed calendar Jan. 22 through Jan. 29.  The DPC reviewed the recommendations/feedback provided by staff and parents, which were overwhelmingly positive, and the Board of Trustees adopted the official calendar on Feb. 18, 2020. 

When developing the proposed calendar, factors the DPC considers are:
    • Calendar development is driven by what is best for student instruction.
    • The state requires that all students attend school for 75,600 minutes annually.
    • Teachers must work 187 days per school year.
    • The first semester should end prior to Christmas Break to ensure that secondary students may take final exams prior to the holidays. 
   • Staff Development Days will be placed strategically throughout the school year to ensure that instructional staff has appropriate time for professional development and instructional planning.
   • Two inclement weather make up days must be built into the calendar.
