Calendar Change — School Board Approves Updated 2018-19 School Calendar

The West Linn-Wilsonville School Board approved an amendment to the 2018-19 school calendar during a special meeting on Monday, April 16.

The Oregon Education Association is organizing a statewide day of action planned for May 8 related to insufficient school funding. West Linn-Wilsonville staff recommended the Board make a change to the calendar in response to that possible day of action, as District leaders are unsure how many teachers will participate across the Portland Metro area.

In order to keep the full allotment of instructional hours intact for students, and maintain a high level of quality teaching and learning when students are in the classroom, the School Board approved three calendar changes involving previously scheduled professional development days.

Wednesday, April 24 was converted from a Professional Growth Wednesday to a full day of school for all students and schools; Wednesday, May 8, was converted to a full Professional Growth Wednesday, meaning no school for students; and Wednesday, May 22 was converted to a Professional Growth Wednesday with two-hour early release at the primary level only.

The School Board approved the calendar change on April 16 to give families adequate time to make any necessary adjustments ahead of May 8. All after-school athletic events, as well as AP testing, will continue as normally scheduled on May 8. To view the updated 2018-19 school calendar, visit the About Us section of the district website.
