Pleasanton Unified School District

Board adopts revised calendar for the 2016-17 school year

 

Dear Pleasanton USD families and community,

In a unanimous decision, the Pleasanton Board of Trustees adopted the revised 2016-17 school calendar during the February 9 board meeting.

This means that classes for the 2016-17 school year will begin on August 15 and end on June 2. In addition, beginning next school year, the first semester will conclude prior to winter break

This was an important decision as it affects our students and families, teachers and staff.

We thank our entire community for providing feedback for this important decision including nearly 3,700 individuals who took our school calendar survey and nearly 200 individuals who attended our two community forums (view the forum presentation here).  And a very special thank you to the amazing students, parents, teachers, principals, district staff and our union representatives who dedicated time and energy as part of Pleasanton USD's calendar committee.  

The well-being of our students is the district's top priority and our board trustees made their decision with this at heart.

With gratitude,

Jim Hansen,

Interim Superintendent, Pleasanton Unified School District
