Board of Education Considers 2021-2022 School Calendar

The Board of Education, on first reading, considered approval of the new 2021-2022 school calendar. The Board will consider final approval during second reading at its next meeting on February 8.

The new calendar calls for the first day of school to be Wednesday, August 18 and the last day to be May 25, 2022, with five snow days built into the calendar. If no snow days are used, the last day would be May 18. The calendar includes four virtual days in which students would complete assignments at home while teachers are in professional development. Fall Break has been shortened by one day, while students would get a full week for Thanksgiving. To view the proposed calendar, click here.

“In full disclosure, we had thought we could shift to distance learning days and do away with snow days,” said Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler. “However, that turned out to be extremely challenging, as far as employees getting to work safely and other issues. At the end of the day, we decided we need to reinstitute snow days in the event we have inclement weather.”

Hartzler said there will be no more “Late Start Fridays,” as the district has reconfigured them as four virtual days for students, two each semester.

Assistant Superintendent Sandi Calvin said students will have assigned work they must accomplish.

“Virtual days will take place on a Wednesday and there will not be live instruction,” said Calvin. “There may, however, be videos to watch and work to complete. Secondary students will be expected to log into Canvas and teachers will follow up on Thursday and Friday to see what’s been accomplished. Primary grades will have a different format.”
