During the Board of Education meeting on November 7, the Board of Education approved the 2023-24 school calendar. A printable calendar is available for parents to provide a one-page at a glance view of the school year.
This calendar was created in consultation with the elementary school districts located within the District 207 boundaries. The winter and spring breaks in District 207 align with those partner districts.
Key dates in the calendar include:
- Aug. 14, 2023: First day for 9th graders only
- Aug. 15, 2023: All students in attendance
- Dec. 25. 2023-Jan. 5, 2024: Winter Break
- March 25-April 1, 2024: Spring Break
- May 24, 2024: Last Day of School
This calendar removes from the schedule a traditional parent/teacher evening. Many districts have gone away from parent/teacher conferences and the reasoning in District 207 for this change is based on the fact that teachers and staff are available to speak to parents/guardians at any time to discuss the academic or social/emotional needs of a student. Additionally, parent/teacher conferences historically have been too short for parents/guardians and teachers to discuss concerns or provide deep answers to questions. Therefore, parents now are encouraged to connect with teachers at any time during the school year and not wait for a traditional conference date. In addition, if a teacher has academic or social/emotional concerns, he/she/they will reach out to the parent/guardian.
Meet the Teacher night remains a part of the calendar and will be held on August 31, 2023.
