MCPS Seeking Feedback on 2020–2021 School Year Calendar Scenarios
During its regular business meeting on October 8, the Board of Education reviewed calendar scenarios for the 2020-2021 school year. As a result of legislative action in last spring’s Maryland General Assembly, school districts in Maryland have the authority again to start school before Labor Day and end the school year after June 15th. As a result, MCPS has developed three calendar scenarios that reflect different start and end dates for School Year 2020-2021. To view the draft calendar scenarios, please click here.
All draft scenarios for the calendar include:
- 182 student instructional days
- Full spring break
- Full professional day for grading and planning at the end of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd quarters
- Possible make-up days both during the school year and extending the school year
The Board is seeking feedback on the calendar options in the comment box on the website. The Board is scheduled to adopt a final school calendar later this year.
