Family and Teacher Input Helps Revise 2020-2021 SUSD School Year Calendar
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (Sept. 19, 2019) – The Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) Governing Board voted unanimously on Tuesday, Sept. 17 to modify the 2020-2021 school year calendar.
As a result of feedback from SUSD families and teachers, the changes include moving the first day of school for students to Monday, Aug. 10, 2020, four days later than had been approved by a previous Governing Board. The District polled teachers in recent weeks regarding their preferences for workdays before and immediately after the 2020-2021 school year. By a large majority, teachers indicated that they would like to attend District-provided professional development sessions and ready their classrooms during the full week before the school year starts to be able to complete their duties before the 2021 Memorial Day holiday.
The revised 2020-2021 SUSD school calendar can be found in both English and Spanish at susd.org/Calendar. Stay connected with SUSD on social media at susd.org/Connect and read the latest District news at susd.org/News.
