  • The 2022-2023 student calendar was approved by the Board of Education on Monday, January 24, 2022.

    District leaders collected feedback from staff and building principals on how to use the calendar to align with our goal of becoming a premier school district and ensuring every student graduates.

    A few items of note for the 2022-2023 student calendar:

    • The calendar captures many of the priorities staff have shared in recent years, including: additional PD days; providing three full days for Thanksgiving break; providing a full week for spring break; and ending school earlier (pending weather make-up days).
    • The calendar includes an earned day off for staff on November 11th and March 31st to compensate for time spent working parent-teacher conferences.
    • The 2022-2023 calendar includes no school on Friday, May 19th or 26th due to the state track meet hosted at Jefferson City High School, which brings in millions of dollars in economic impact to our community.
