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.
Free immunizations available
Chaparral Elementary School will host a series of free immunization clinics by the Chandler Regional Medical Center over the next few months, giving parents an opportunity to immunize children with school vaccinations.
