Academic Year 2020-2021 Calendar Adopted

At the December 10, 2019 Flagstaff Unified School District Governing Board meeting, the 2020-2021 school year academic calendar was formally adopted following a stakeholder process that included receiving feedback from families and FUSD team members.  


Based on the feedback of two proposed calendars (A and B), a third calendar was considered to incorporate the feedback of the participants and key priorities while meeting the state requirements for instructional days and hours.  


Additionally, Killip and Leupp elementary schools will have modified calendars considered by the Governing Board at a future meeting.
