New Look for Future SUSD School-Year Calendars
Parents looking to make plans during the next two school years now have a newly re-designed resource to consult. Dates on the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD) school-year calendars have not changed – only the design of the information has been updated. The current and newly-redesigned upcoming school-year calendars are available online at susd.org/calendar.
Several factors play a role in determining school-year calendars, including state instructional day requirements, community needs and professional development obligations. District administrators work together with community members, teachers and staff on the meticulous details that need to be considered before a final calendar is approved by the Governing Board.
Important dates SUSD families should keep in mind:
2018-2019 School Year: August 2018 – May 2019
- The last day of school for the current school year is May 30, 2019.
- High school graduation for the Class of 2019 will also take place on May 30, 2019.
2019-2020 School Year: August 2019 – May 2020
- The first day of the next school year will be Aug. 5, 2019.
- Fall break will be Oct. 7 – 11, 2019.
- Thanksgiving break will be Nov. 27 – 29, 2019.

- Spring break will be March 9 – 13, 2020.

The calendars also denote early release days for parent-teacher conferences, and collaborative professional development for teacher and staff that translates into results in the classroom and improved student outcomes.
