In March, the Atlanta Board of Education is expected to take action on the Atlanta Public Schools calendars for the next two school years for 2013-14 and 2014-2015.
Prior to the board’s consideration, however, the Department of Organizational Advancement has been and will continue to present information about the proposed calendars to the community. A Calendar Final Draft and Calendar FAQs are attached with this article.
This week, the district will conduct two more calendar meetings that will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in each region as follows:
· East Region: January 28 – Inman Middle School
· North Region: January 29 – Douglass High School
At the beginning of the current school year, APS began gathering data gathered through a survey that has assisted the APS Calendar Committee in designing a calendar that meets the requirements of state law, that supports student attendance and achievement, and that considers the preferences of families.
The public can now comment on the proposed 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 calendars here.
The board is expected to accept the 2013-14 and 2014-15 calendars for first reading on Feb. 4, and then for a final read in March in order for board members to participate in the community meetings.
