The Knob Noster Board of Education approves the academic calendar based on the recommendation of the District Calendar Committee and superintendent. If the district cancels school for snow days or for other unforeseen reasons, those days are made up as described within the calendar. 

Who determines what the calendar looks like?

The Board of Education votes to approve the calendar based upon the recommendation of the Superintendent and the District Calendar committee. The committee includes teachers, support staff, and administrators.

When does the final decision on the school calendar take place?

The District Calendar Committee begins meeting in the fall. The committee usually makes a recommendation to the Board in March, and the Board usually makes its final decision in April.

What are the Calendar Committee's top priorities for developing the calendar?

The Calendar Committee makes its decision with four main priorities in mind:
  1. The calendar should support instruction and assessment for students;
  2. The calendar should reflect the desires of parents and the community; and
  3. The calendar should be friendly to families.
  4. The calendar should represent the interests of Knob Noster employees.
