EB(LOCAL) - SCHOOL YEAR
Note: This local policy has been revised in accordance with the District's innovation plan.
Exception to Uniform Start Date
In accordance with the District's innovation plan, the District shall be exempt from the statutory restriction that prohibits the instructional school year from beginning before the fourth Monday in August.
Therefore, the District shall annually develop a school calendar in which the instructional year may begin earlier than the fourth Monday in August.
The Superintendent shall be authorized to approve variations from the Board-adopted school calendar, as necessary.
The Board delegates to the Superintendent the authority to close schools for reasons of public health and safety.
