Chief Communications Officer Andrea Grooms said the survey on the two 2025-26 calendar options was administered between Dec. 8-Jan. 8.

“Participants overwhelmingly voted for Option A,” Grooms said during the Jan. 22 meeting. “We had about 11,500 participants; 80% of them voted for that calendar option.”

Grooms said survey participants cited the earlier start date and the earlier end date as why they voted for Option A.
