Calendar Survey Information

Garfield Re-2 22-23/23-24 Calendar Options
This is the image for the news article titled Garfield Re-2 22-23/23-24 Calendar OptionsThe Garfield Re-2 School District, through their negotiating body, Collaborative Solutions, is seeking feedback from stakeholders to determine the calendars for the 2022-23  and 2023-24 school years. All calendars are based on feedback from the calendar priority survey conducted earlier this year.

All calendars options:
  • Do their best to end before June;
  • Have a three day Thanksgiving break to help get out prior to June;
  • Have 149 school days;
  • Maintain a 4-day school week;
  • Maintain the current school hours (generally 8 - 4) [Neighboring school districts that are on a 4-day school week have a longer school day and that impacts their school calendar]
  • Change slightly in the 23-24 school year. Please look at both years when you make your decision.
There are four options that we would like stakeholders to rank in order of preference with 1 being your first choice and 4 being your least favorite. The major differences come in the number of days for Winter break, the addition of MLK day, and the start date. This survey will close at Midnight on Thursday, March 3.
