Board adopts 2019-2020 School Year Calendar

At their March 21, 2018, Board Meeting, the AUHSD Governing Board adopted the 2019-2020 Academic Calendar.


Per the 2017-2018 Local Control and Accountability Plan, a School Year Calendar Task Force was formed and met from October through February.  The Task Force was comprised of stakeholders from the Lafayette School District, Moraga School District, Orinda Union School District, Walnut Creek School District and Acalanes Union High School District. The Governing Board received reports and updates on the work of the Task Force at the September 6, November 15, January 10, and February 7 Governing Board Meetings in the 2017-2018 school year as well as at a special study session of the Board on February 26.  The Board had followup discussion on the Calendar at the March 7 Board Meeting.  The District continues to collaborate with the partner districts with the interest of K-8 district adoption of closely aligned calendars.
