Valley View seeking comments on proposed 2013-14 calendar
Valley View School District 365U released a draft of the 2013-14 school year calendar Monday evening and is looking for comments.
The new calendar features an earlier start to the school year, Aug. 16, so the district is able to end the first semester prior to Winter Break. The earlier start will means the school year will end on May 27, provided there are no snow days.
School holidays would include Labor Day (Sept. 2), Columbus Day (Oct. 14), Veterans’ Day (Nov. 11), Martin Luther King’s birthday (Jan. 20), Presidents’ Day (Feb. 17), Pulaski Day (March 3), Good Friday (April 18), and Memorial Day (May 26).
Thanksgiving break would be Nov. 27 to 29, Winter Break from Dec. 23 through Jan. 5 and Spring Break from April 7 to April 13.
The draft, which was developed by a committee consisting of certified and classified staff members from all grade levels, as well as administrative and parent representation, will be brought back to the board for approval on Feb. 11.
Anyone wishing to comment on the draft may either submit the comment through “Ask the Superintendent” or by calling Lisa Langer at 815-886-2700, ext. 241.
A copy of the draft is included in the News section at www.vvsd.org.
