In preparing the 2019-2020 Academic Calendar, the District met with a Calendar Committee comprised of faculty, staff, and parents. Their feedback helped to guide the creation of the calendar. Some highlights for next year include:
- The 2019-2020 school year is set to begin on Wednesday, August 21, 2019, for students in grades K-9. Students in grades 10-12 will begin on Thursday, August 22, 2019.
- The District has decided not to schedule spring parent-teacher conferences this year. Members of the Calendar Committee discussed this topic and felt strongly that communication between home and school is very effective and can be scheduled as needed throughout the school year.
- The Pennsylvania primary election will take place on Tuesday, April 28, 2020. Students will not have classes that day, and staff will use that time as an in-service day.
- Graduation for the class of 2020 will take place on Thursday, June 4, 2020.
- Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, Quaker Valley will expand to all-day kindergarten.
