New for next year are innovative social-emotional learning days, which are part of our priority focus on student safety and well-being,” said Superintendent Chavez.
“Overall, the 2023-24 school calendar provides for additional learning for students and staff, focused time for developing essential student self-awareness and life skills and days in the fall and winter for parents and teachers to discuss student learning and needs,” he said.
