School board to look at new calendar process tonight

Report includes timeline, calendar committee, meeting dates

The Pleasanton school board is set to discuss the process and timeline regarding the development of calendar options for the 2016-17 school year during its Tuesday night board meeting.

District staff will be presenting information about the stakeholder calendar committee, proposed calendar committee meeting dates and timeline for the calendar process.

According to staff reports, the stakeholder calendar committee will:

* Examine and discuss information related to traditional and non-traditional calendar options

* Identify a calendar survey to administer to staff, parents, and students in the district

* Examine and discuss survey results and recommend next steps based on the survey

* Identify and prioritize possible 2016-17 alternative and traditional calendars for further negotiation

The committee will be made up of three teachers (elementary/middle/high school), three parents (elementary/middle/high school), two classified staff, three principals or site administrators (elementary/middle/high school), three students (one from each high school), one Curriculum Department administrator, one classified administrator, one Association of Pleasanton Teachers (APT) representative, and one California School Employees Association (CSEA) representative. The assistant superintendent of human resources, Bill Faraghan, will be the facilitator.

The anticipated calendar process timeline includes discussing and developing a survey, which would be sent out to staff, parents and students in June or September. In addition, the 2016-17 calendar will be brought to the school board for approval sometime in December and January 2016.
