23-24 Calendar Deviations from SDMC
Below are the subtle changes that we propose for the 23-24 Rowlett Academies Academic Calendar:
-The pre-school Inservice (professional development) Days were changed from Aug 3rd and 9th to Aug 2nd and 8th. Our first day with staff back on campus is traditionally when we conduct whole group welcome/team building activities, then teachers would have the next two days in their classrooms to prepare for Parent University and Open House on August 5th. This change would also allow teachers the option to attend district training sessions on the 3rd and/or the 9th, if they choose, while not interfering with the PD our schools plan to have.
-Added a 1st Quarter PLW on September 13th because we want to have a PLW each quarter for increased opportunities for professional development for staff.
-Added ES & MS 1st Quarter report card conference night on Oct 19 & 26 with a 12:35/12:50 early release on Oct 27.
-Flipped 2nd Quarter Record Day to Dec 22 and January 5th to a Schools Closed day so staff have a full two weeks of break.
-Added a 4th Quarter PLW on April 17th.
-Added ES & MS 3rd Quarter report card conference night on March 21 & April 5 with a 12:35/12:50 early release on March 31.
