Calendars

2021-22 Academic Calendar

The WSISD District Planning Committee (DPC), which consists of teachers, administrators, parents, community members and other school employees, developed the Proposed 2021-22 District Academic Calendar.  Parents and staff members were encouraged to provide input regarding the proposed calendar Jan. 19 through Jan. 25.  The DPC reviewed the recommendations/feedback provided by staff and parents, and the Board of Trustees adopted the official calendar on Feb. 22. 

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.
