  • Change the start of school professional development days from August 4-9 to August 9-13, 2021 and moving the start date for educators from the first week of August to the second week of August and providing five professional development days instead of four to prepare for the school year.
  • Change the workday from August 10 to August 16, 2021 to align with the professional development days.
  • Add an early release on December 10, 2021 to allow for collaborative team time as the first semester is close to ending and in preparation for the second semester.
  •  Change January 3, 2022 from a holiday to a flex professional development day to meet the 187-day teacher contract requirement with training that takes place outside the regular work calendar.
  • Change the professional development day from February 11 to February 18, 2022 and the bad weather day from February 14 to February 21, 2022  to align with Presidents’ Day.
