The SDPC board of trustees approved the 2018-2019 School Calendar on October 23. The school year will begin on August 20 and end on May 31, and high school graduation is planned for May 25!

In September, we asked our parents and community to give feedback on a first draft of the calendar, and the results of that survey can be seen here. Based on feedback from the survey as well as considerations of what would be best for learning, two key changes were made between the first and second drafts:


  • Spring Break was moved earlier in the year, so that it will now fall on April 15-19.
  • The first two Professional Learning days for teachers were moved from August 6-7 to August 13-14.


We appreciate the great feedback we heard from almost 2,500 of our parents and teachers during the development of the calendar. We are already in the process of drafting a 2019-2020 calendar with proposals for innovative changes. Community feedback will be extremely valuable as we consider whether to pursue those changes in 2019-2020.
