The School Board approved a new 2020-2021 School Year Calendar during the August 11th School Board meeting.
The first day of the 2020-2021 school year will now be September 14th.
The board made this decision for several reasons, ultimately, to allow more time for staff, parents and students to prepare for the upcoming year
- It allows time for WSD to offer training for parents and childcare providers. WSD has hired three teachers (Rosa Tapia, Maggie Celaya, and Ralph Estalilla), to connect with families and childcare providers and help prepare them for Distance Learning.
- It allows time for parents to determine whether to elect to sign-up their student(s) for the online virtual school. The enrollment period is Wednesday, August 12th through Wednesday, August 26th.
- It allows time to prepare staff and ensure a much improved digital learning experience.
