2016-2017 Instructional Calendar Exploration

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is exploring ending the 1st semester prior to the winter break, which would shift the school year to start one week earlier in August. Over the years, numerous parents, staff and students have expressed interest in this change in order to provide a mid-year winter break, free from homework and studying.

 

The discussion is focused on the instructional calendar for 2016-2017 and beyond. While this shift would not have as great of an impact on the trimester system at the elementary schools, it would impact SRVUSD current elementary students as they matriculate to middle school and beyond.

 

In 2015, the Board of Education directed District staff to form a Calendar Committee comprised of SRVUSD stakeholders to analyze the costs and benefits and the community’s interest in this change. The Committee put out a community survey and a middle and high school student survey to gain further understanding of the interest in ending the first semester prior to winter break. Based on that input, a draft calendar was developed and refined. Since any change to a calendar must be bargained, this draft calendar is now being discussed with the District’s employee groups and is subject to change as part of that process.

 

Once an agreement is reached, a bargained draft calendar will be shared again with the public who will have an opportunity to again provide input.

 

The following Questions and Answers were developed based on questions. Please click the link below to learn more about the instructional calendar exploration conversation.

 

Instructional Calendar Exploration Q&A

 

Draft Proposed Calendar

The following calendar is the draft 2016-2017 Instructional Calendar that is being discussed.

 

2016-2017 Draft Instructional Calendar

 

Background

The impetus for the exploration is driven solely by the desire to do what is in the best interest for students. While SRVUSD wants our students to achieve academic success, we also want them to be healthy, happy and well-rounded. For several years, there have been informal conversations among parents, staff and students about changing the calendar to provide students (especially at high school) a winter break free from homework, projects and assignments, as most colleges and universities do. About a year ago, the Board of Education directed District administration to form a Calendar Committee to explore the community’s interests, and the impact of possibly ending the first semester prior to winter break. The committee met several times over a year, gathered input from their respective organizations or communities and studied the results of the surveys to parents and students. From that process, the committee developed the current draft calendar that is now being explored by the District’s employee bargaining units. 

 

Community Feedback

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District surveyed parents, students, staff and community members to better gauge the interest in ending the first semester for middle and high schools before the start of the Winter Break. The results of these surveys can be viewed by clicking on the links below:

 

Parent, Staff and Community Survey

Middle and High School Student Survey

 

Since sending out the draft calendar to all community members SRVUSD has received feedback in support and in opposition to the changes.

 

Next Steps 

Over the coming weeks and months, the District hopes to complete the collective bargaining work with our respective union groups regarding this possible change in the calendar. SRVUSD will share the draft calendar that comes out of the bargaining process with stakeholders, continuing to seek feedback, prior to taking it to the Board of Education for action.

 

Feedback

Questions and comments about the proposed draft 2016-2017 Instructional Calendar can be sent to InstructionalCalendar@srvusd.net.
