The Anchorage School District is developing future school calendars and welcomes your input. Each year, the district receives many suggestions from parents, employees and community members on calendar planning for upcoming school years.

"In year's past, we've looked at Veterans Day and going to school year-round," Anchorage School Board President Starr Marsett said. "We've played a little bit with Thanksgiving, giving off more time off at Thanksgiving because a lot of students miss school and staff wants off, they want that whole week. So these are just recommendations for those individuals that they voted on to bring to the public and now we want public comment on." 

This survey is intended to get further public input on many of these suggestions. Currently, there are two versions of the school calendar to vote on, which can be found here.

Calendar planning decisions are independent of the current discussion around school start times.

"The decisions would affect the school calendar for the next three to five years," Marsett said.
