Board seeking public input on proposed changes to 2017-2018 academic calendar

The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District Board of Education is considering making an adjustment to the 2017-2018 academic calendar and is collecting public input through April 24.


School district administration is recommending adding four early out days, one per quarter, to the 2017-2018 academic calendar for additional professional development. This proposal is in response to input from teachers and principals who expressed a need for additional training time to successfully implement a shift to personalized learning and complete existing required trainings.


Please visit this survey to indicate your preference for which day of the week to select for the professional development early outs. Draft versions of the proposed calendar are below showing Monday, Wednesday and Friday options.
