KPBSD Policy Manual

BP 6111


The Superintendent shall recommend to the School Board a school calendar that will meet the requirements of the law as well as the needs of the community, students and the work year as negotiated with District personnel with a primary focus on the District's ability to deliver the instructional program. 

As authorized by state law, the Board shall establish the annual school calendar that fixes the dates and days of attendance based upon the recommendations of the calendar committee which is composed of one teacher, three parents (representing elementary, middle school, and high school age students), student, administrator, educational support employee and Board member. The calendar committee will recommend calendars for two school years. The committee shall complete its duties by December 1 of the year preceding the expiration of the currently adopted calendar cycle. 

The school calendar shall show the beginning and ending school dates, legal and local holidays, orientation and teacher inservice days, number of teaching days, vacation periods and other pertinent dates.
