Agenda Item Summary:
The Academic Calendar Planning Committee would like to inform the School Board of its recommendation to defer the calendar approval process from June 2021 to November 2021. This deferral will provide more time for the Committee to assess public feedback of the 2022 – 2024 draft calendars. The Calendar Committee will convene in September 2021 and make its recommendation to the Superintendent in October 2021. Board approval would be subsequently scheduled no later than November 2021.  
In accordance with School Board policy IC/ID - School Year/School Day, the School Board shall adopt the official school calendar for the following year no later than June 1 upon the recommendation of the Superintendent. Additionally, in accordance with this policy an advisory committee composed of teachers, parents, and administrators may be convened to recommend a proposed calendar to the Superintendent.  
The Superintendent recommends that the School Board review the revised timeline for approval of the 2022-2024 academic calendars.
