The purpose of this survey is to learn more about the perceptions of the CCPS community regarding possibly starting school before the Labor Day holiday.


The General Assembly recently passed new legislation regarding the setting of school calendars and the first day that students may be required to attend school. Accordingly, it is no longer necessary for school divisions to seek waivers to begin the school year prior to Labor Day


Survey results with will be shared with the School Board as they consider the adoption of the 2020-2021 school calendar.

Background Information:

What are potential benefits starting the school year before Labor Day?

*Starting school before Labor Day would allow students to have several extra weeks in the classroom prior to the start of Standards of Learning (SOL) testing, Advanced Placement (AP) testing, and Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).


Would the school end earlier or would we still get out mid-June?

*If the decision were made to move forward with starting school before Labor Day, that would allow more flexibility with the calendar in general. 
*We would be able to end the school year earlier.


If CCPC were to start school before Labor Day would it start with the 2020-2021 school year?

The School Board ultimately would make this decision, but the calendar
could be developed to phase this in as late as the 2021-2022 school
