The calendar shift will be implemented for the 2021-22 school year. The calendar shift was an initiative pushed by SurfBoardE which has been in progress for the past four years. The purpose of this project was to push our school calendar forward to start in early-mid August in order for finals to be before winter break. This promotes a better learning environment for numerous students, including AP students, ELL students, and student-athletes. Additionally, teachers benefit from this shift as well in terms of how much time they have to grade finals and teach the curriculum in a grading period.
