The calendar totals 175 instructional days and 12 professional development days, Bullock said. This year, both students and staff will also have a holiday on Election Day, Nov. 3.
“This calendar has election day Nov. 3 as a staff and student holiday. With [our schools serving as polling places] and our charge to keep our students and staff safe, it’s kind of hard to meet both those goals in one day when polling places by definition need to be open to all," he said during the meeting.
Other holidays include Labor Day (Sept. 7), Thanksgiving (Nov. 23-27), Christmas (Dec. 21, 2020-Jan. 4, 2021), Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan. 18), Presidents' Day (Feb. 15), spring break (March 15-19), Good Friday (April 2) and Memorial Day (May 31), according to the approved calendar.
