Community Feedback

Each year, the Joint Albemarle County/Charlottesville City Schools Calendar Committee works to produce a school calendar that supports our goals to engage students, improve opportunities and achievement, and get the most productivity out of our resources. Community feedback is an essential part of this process.

Thank you to all who participated in our recent calendar survey!

In response to feedback from the first draft of the 2018-19 calendar, the Calendar Commitee has made a few changes:

  • The last day of the first 9-week grading period has been moved from a half-day on Thursday, October 25, to a full day on Thursday, November 1. The half-day of school-based professional development previously proposed for October 25 has been removed.
  • The teacher workday on Friday, October 26, has been moved to Monday, November 5.
  • The division-wide professional development day on Monday, November 5, has been moved to Friday, November 2. (Making Connections will be held on this day.)
