Miami-Dade School Board to Vote on Revised School Calendars

As a result of Hurricane Irma, M-DCPS had to cancel seven days of school last month.  Even with the loss of the seven instructional days, the District exceeds the minimum instructional hours required by the state in order to participate in the Florida Education Finance Program (FEFP).  However, the loss of instructional time resulted in impacts to student learning and therefore adjustments to the school calendar are proposed to return this valuable time to students and teachers. The proposed changes to the calendars will be considered by the School Board at their next regular meeting to be held on October 11, 2017.


Five dates would be converted to regular school days on the Revised Elementary and Secondary School Calendar  -- 2017-18 and the Revised Juvenile Justice Center School Calendar -- 2017-18. The impacted dates are:


January 19, 2018 (previously a teacher planning day);

February 15, 2018 (previously a secondary early release day);

April 19, 2018 (previously a secondary early release day);

April 20, 2018 (previously a teacher planning day); and

May 17, 2018 (previously a secondary early release day)


Two dates would be converted to regular school days on the Revised

Adult/Vocational Education School Calendar -- 2017-18. The impacted dates are:


January 19, 2018 (previously a teacher planning day); and

April 20, 2018 (previously a teacher planning day)
