[Volcano_Vista_HS] APS Calendar Committee Report for 2012-13 School Year
Moderator's Note: The calendar committee has been working hard to knock out next year's calendar. They would like parental input before finalizing. Special thanks to our own BJ Powell for serving on the committee the past 5 years! Read on...
The APS Calendar Committee has been working on next year's school calendar and would like your input. I'm a parent, who's served on the Calendar Committee for 5 years...since my son will be a senior next year, this is my last year to serve. I've done several surveys in the past, to ask for community input regarding school calendars, but I don't plan to conduct one this year, because APS posted one on their web site. I'm pleased they've done so, because they are able to reach our entire community!
Before viewing the proposed calendar, I just want to explain the options listed for Fall Break. In recent years, Fall Break has occurred on the last Friday of Balloon Fiesta. In 2012, the first Monday of Balloon Fiesta falls on a national holiday, so we discussed moving the break to Monday for just this year, since many parents will have that day off work.
To view the proposed calendar, you can go to the following link:
The site offers access to a PDF version of the calendar and has a link to a form (at the bottom) on which you can give feedback. Our committee will review the survey results before presenting a recommended 2012/2013 calendar to the APS School Board.
