Upcoming Meeting Agenda & Minutes





District Calendar Committee Charter 2018-19

The purpose of this group is to:
Use data and stakeholder input to develop calendar options that are inclusive of start/end dates, holidays, professional development days and other key events. Certificated and classified staff members vote upon the calendar options. The calendar option receiving the most votes is recommended to the superintendent and school board for final approval.

Committee Type:
Contractual Committee

Basis for Establishment:
The MVEA collective bargaining agreement requires the formation of the committee and defines the decision-making process. The agreement invites stakeholder representation in the form of a student representative and parent representative to assist in the formation of the calendar options.

Meeting Calendar

Time & Location: TBD
Once formed, the committee will meet as needed to develop at least two calendar options. The options will be voted upon and a final recommendation will be submitted to the MVSD Superintendent and School Board for consideration at the March 28, 2018 regular School Board meeting.
