In an effort to broaden our outreach and receive feedback from our stakeholders, the Alpine Union School District is conducting a Parent and Community Survey in regard to planning the 2017-2018 AUSD Student Calendar.  Survey opinions from staff, parents and community members will inform discussions between the District and the Alpine Teachers Association as they negotiate the school calendar. It will also inform the Alpine Union Board of Trustees when members vote to approve the calendar.

Keeping in mind that many of our students’ siblings feed into the Grossmont Union High School District, we are seeking your input on the following question: How closely should AUSD align its student calendar with the Grossmont Union student calendar?

As a point of reference, here is Grossmont Union’s Student Schedule for the 2017-18 School Year
            First student day                  Tuesday, August 15
            Winter Break begins            Friday, December 22
            School resumes                   Monday, January 8
            Last student day                  Wednesday, June 6
