2019-2020 School Calendar

The proposed amendment to Section 101(10) of the State School Aid Act was enacted effective October 1, 2019 and now allows school districts to count qualifying teacher professional development towards pupil instructional time.  Accordingly, we can now confirm that the alternate calendar that was previously shared is now approved and finalized.
