Winter Recess 2023 – Arlington Public Schools Superintendent Francisco Duran proposed starting school next fall and having more school days than the current school year.
If approved, the 2023-24 calendar will have 180 school days for all students and will begin on August 21, 2023. This year, elementary and middle school students will have 175 study days and 174 high school students, which are in the state. standards. 180 days and APS calendar before the pandemic.

The proposal comes after APS received more than 7,100 responses from families and staff earlier this fall to a survey that included approval of the current calendar and asked for input on three possible calendars for next year. . Some respondents asked APS to align its calendar with local districts, such as Fairfax County Public Schools, and others suggested reducing the number of cultural and religious holidays, according to the minutes for the School Board meeting. coming up this wednesday.

“It is important to be in harmony with the local communities for the holidays and the beginning of the day … so that our school can be full of its teachers,” one responded, in the presentation.
Another said he “supports closeness, but does not support APS that makes use of religious holidays.”
Durán’s proposal has the same start date as the approved schedule or calendar for most districts, with the exception of FCPS, which has no proposal yet.
Winter Break Is Here!
The Durán calendar begins a full week before some of the research participants and the calendar committee which is a group of school principals, PTA members, teachers’ union representatives and office workers. It has a longer winter break than both calendars.
The School Board will receive more information about the calendar and the preferred choice on Thursday. Durán’s 2023-24 calendar is scheduled to be voted on Wednesday, December 15.
The proposed increase would mark a return to the pre-pandemic aspects of the calendar, something the activist group Arlington Parents for Education advocated last year. He said this is one way to address the importance of education.

“Removing our long-standing commitment to provide at least 180 school days, especially given the historic academic disadvantage that APS students are currently experiencing, is the wrong way to go,” the group said in an analysis of the new calendar. . “Our students deserve the school system to return to Virginia’s historic tradition of meeting the 180-day, 990-hour standard.”
Over the past 10 years, the EPA says, 181 days has been the norm for school attendance days. APS dropped below 180 days during the 2020-21 school year, at the start of the pandemic, and has not returned to 180 days since, he said.
A few years ago, APS started the school year before Labor Day after former Virginia Governor Ralph Northam authorized schools to start up to two weeks before September vacation.

“Despite these changes, APS tends to start earlier than neighboring sectors,” the group said. The result is fewer school days for Arlington children.

Starting in the 2021-22 school year, APS also added four non-Christian religious holidays, a move some respondents objected to.

The proposed 2023-2024 calendar will celebrate Yom Kippur (September 25) and Eid al-Fitr (April 10). This fall, APS takes days off for Rosh Hashanah and Diwali, but they won’t be on next year’s calendar, probably because they’re scheduled for next fall’s weekend.
“A comparison of the 10-year history of the calendar and a comparison of the current APS calendar with our neighbors shows that starting earlier, ending later, using government holidays or different procedures during winter break, APS has options for how to meet 180 days,” APE said.
Durán recommends 31 days for federal, winter and religious holidays, as well as accounting and reporting days.
