Delaware City Schools Board of Education held a first reading for the 2019-2020 calendar on October 22. The school calendar was developed by a committee of teachers, classified staff and administrators in an effort to provide the greatest educational benefits to our students. It is difficult to create a school calendar that meets everyone's needs, but the following factors were considered by the calendar committee:
Meeting the required number of instructional hours at all grade levels
Creating a calendar with balanced semesters
Completing exams prior to winter break for high school students
Maximizing instructional days prior to state assessments and testing
Maintaining a full week for spring break
Developing a calendar that works with the state testing schedule at all grade levels
The Board of Education will receive public input for 30 days before adopting a school calendar at their December 10th meeting. Share your comments by sending an email to WeAreListening@delawarecityschools.net.
