Tentative 2019-2020 Partial Calendar


We understand that families are trying to make plans for the next school year. This is the District proposed calendar through January 2020 and remains subject to negotiations with the Anchor Bay Education Association. Accordingly, it should not be considered final, other than the start date for students (which is not subject to negotiations) and the winter and spring breaks which must coordinate with the ISD “common calendar”. PDF DocumentClick here for the Tentative 2019-2020 Partial Calendar
