2015-16 School Year Calendar
A draft calendar has been proposed for the 2015-16 school year and is going before the Seattle Public Schools School Board Executive Committee on April 2, 2015. It will be introduced to the board at the April 22 school board meeting and the board will take action on it May 6.
Draft important dates under consideration by the school board:
Sept. 9: Start of school
Dec. 21-Jan 4: Winter break
Feb. 15-19: Mid-winter break
April 11-15: Spring break
June 23: Last day of school
Again, these are still draft dates until the school board votes. Upon approval (or changes and approval) this information will be updated and families will receive communications on the approved calendar.
This year, Seattle Public Schools published 52,000 wall calendars, which were mailed to families, staff and community members. In addition to providing families with key dates throughout the school year, the calendar includes a family guide with important information about transportation, inclement weather instructions, lunch menus, testing schedules and key contact information.
Advertising in the wall calendar was made possible by the School Board in June 2012. Revenue earned from calendar sponsorship assumes calendar production costs. Without this money, the district would eventually have to stop publishing the calendar.

The Seattle Public Schools calendar is developed in cooperation with all of the bargaining groups representing Seattle Public Schools employees. The calendar is structured to provide a full week of instruction following spring break and before the beginning of the spring testing period. The calendar also provides specific dates that will be used as make-up days in the event that inclement weather necessitates school closures.
