Community Input for 2018-2019 District Calendar

Cambridge City Schools Board of Education held a first reading for the 2018-2019 calendar on January 30, 2018. The school calendar was developed by a committee of teachers and administrators in an effort to provide the greatest educational benefits to our students. It is difficult to create a school calendar that meets everyone’s needs, but the following factors were considered by the calendar committee:

  • Meeting the required number of instructional hours at all grade levels
  • Creating a calendar with balanced semesters
  • Completing exams prior to winter break for high school students
  • Maximizing instructional days prior to state assessments and testing
  • Developing a calendar that works with the state testing schedule at all grade levels
