Traditional and year-round schools within the San Diego Unified School District are unlikely to see any major changes to their schedules next year despite a proposal to align them in one district-wide calendar.
Operational issues that make it “unfeasible” to make the change in the 2014-2015 school year, according to an email sent by Becky Phillpott, Chair of the SDUSD Calendar Committee to her committee members.
The committee mocked up a calendar for the district to consider. In it, both traditional and year-round schools would start Sept. 2 and would begin winter and spring breaks on the same day.
However, year-round schools would have four weeks for each break compared to the one week break for traditional schools.
Also, the traditional school year would end six weeks before the year-round calendar.
The SDUSD board may phase-in some schools onto the traditional calendar as early as 2015-2016.
The Calendar Committee will reconvene in March to begin work on the 2015-16 instructional calendar.
