How the calendar is made

How does a school calendar come together? First, a committee made up of representatives of metro-Richmond-area school divisions discusses dates for Winter Break, Spring Break, first semester and the end of the year in order to align for consistency. An HCPS committee made up of teachers, administrators, parents and high school students makes initial recommendations to the School Board in fall. Members of the public provide input on the proposal(s), and school division staff make updates based on that feedback. After HCPS staff members present a final draft or drafts to the School Board, the Board approves a final calendar.
