The Academic Calendar Committee has these members, this charge, this timeline, and this outreach plan. We post informal minutes after each of our meetings and are happy to share these resources. You can email us any time.
The Committee is now in the process of optimizing across the multiple and sometimes diverging views that have been expressed through the 1000+ posted comments and the numerous emails that have been received.
We have formulated two possible Fall calendars (F1, F2) and four possible Spring calendars (S1, S2, S3,S4) . Please take a look and post comments below.
|Quick Overview||shows all the options for the busy reader.|
|Fall Calendar F1||2-day Fall break, 3-day Thanksgiving break followed by 9 class days|
|Fall Calendar F2||2-day Fall break, a 5-day Thanksgiving break followed by 9 class days|
|Spring Calendar S1||February break delayed by one week.|
|Spring Calendar S2||The February and Spring break are reversed in order and repositioned|
|Spring Calendar S3||Commencement is two weeks earlier. February and spring break remain|
|Spring Calendar S4||Commencement is two weeks earlier. February break is cancelled.|
Remember that the most valuable comments at this stage are those that address tradeoffs and take into account the broad community. Changes to the calendar are not likely to take effect before the 2018-19 school year.
