  • District Governing Board sets calendar for 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17
     
    The Higley Unified School District board voted Tuesday to maintain the current school calendar configuration for the 2014/15 school year and move to a modified year-round calendar in 2015/16.

    The board approved calendars for the next three years based on the recommendation to the Superintendent by the calendar committee.

    With the vote, the 2014/15 school year will begin Aug. 4, 2014, and will end on May 21, 2015. There will be one-week fall and spring breaks and a two-week winter break.

    The committee used a survey to determine calendar preferences of parents, teachers and staff, and students. Based on those results, the committee made the recommendation for a transition year to make sure families have time to plan.

    The adopted calendar for 2015/16 includes a start date on July 27, 2015, and an end date on May 26, 2016, with two week fall, winter and spring breaks. The adopted calendar for the 2016/17 includes a start date on July 25, 2016, and an end date on May 25, 2017, with two week fall, winter and spring breaks.
     
    The board did ask that the standing calendar committee revisit the 2016/17 calendar to see if the end of the first semester can coincide with the start of winter break.
