CCPS Board adopts calendar for 2020-21 school year
The Caroline County School Board voted Monday, February 10, 2020, to adopt a calendar for the 2020-21 school year that includes:
- Two-week winter break (3 weekends)
- Full week spring break (plus Friday before)
- 3 Day Thanksgiving break
- A shortened School Day (15min. reduction to the end of the school day)
After receiving input from multiple stakeholder groups and an online survey, the school division’s calendar committee made revisions to the initially proposed calendar and requested approval from the school board. The adopted calendar seeks to accomplish a variety of ends, including a pre-Labor-Day start, balanced job-embedded professional learning opportunities and clerical time for teachers, and different days for elementary and secondary parent-teacher conferences. The CCPS school board and
calendar committee are pleased to have an academic calendar that supports high-quality teaching and learning with a shortened school day.
