Announcement: New 2012-13 Calendar Option Proposed

Release Date: 11/16/2011

CCSD is continuing the planning process for the 2012-2013 Student Academic Calendar, and has been soliciting input from parents, staff and the community. After initially proposing two calendar options, staff and parent feedback regarding winter break and the end of the school year has led the district to create another option.

The new option (known as Option 3) will maintain the traditional two weeks of Winter Break while extending the school year into the first week of June. In order to accommodate the new option, 2013 graduations would be moved to June 9 & 10, 2013.

Under any option, the 2012-13 school year cannot begin earlier than August 27, 2012.

The originally proposed calendar Options 1 and 2 were similar, and for purposes of clarity, Option 2 is no longer being considered. 

The major differences between the two options remaining options are the length of Winter Break and when the school year ends.

Option 1 has a shortened Winter Break with the school Year ending May 31, 2013. Option 3 has the traditional two week Winter Break with the school year ending June 6, 2013.

The Board of Trustees is expected to vote on a final calendar in December or January.
