Board Approves 2016-17 School Calendar
Over the last several months, the Reed Union Board of Trustees have been attempting to finalize the 2016-2017 academic calendar. In October, the Board aligned our school district calendar with the anticipated 2016-2017 Tamalpais Union High School District to accommodate major holiday breaks. Subsequently, Tamalpais revised their calendar, moving the holiday break one week later. After hearing from parents, teachers, and staff members, the Board weighed all sides of the issue and ultimately approved readjusting the approved calendar to align with the Tamalpais Union winter holiday. Parents are strongly encouraged to review the final 2016-2017 calendar as the alignment with other districts resulted in a non-traditional winter break period. The newly adopted calendar is attached here.
After the first full week of the challenge, Bel Aire School is in first place in the bay area competition in mastery points. Del Mar is in 7th place, with only the 6th graders tracked as a cohort, so this does not include 7th or 8th grade students who signed up individually. There are two more weeks until the first cup is awarded. Please have your students continue the challenge next week while on break, so we can stay as a front runner in the competition!
