22-23 School Year Calendar
At the March 9, 2022 Garfield Re-2 School Board meeting the Garfield Re-2 School Board approved calendars for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 school years.

The calendars were brought as recommendations by the District’s negotiating body, Collaborative Solutions and based upon feedback from staff, families and community members provided through online surveys.

The initial survey asked stakeholders about their priorities for school calendars. Eighty-six percent of respondents were in favor of maintaining a similar calendar to the 2021-22 school year, and 46% of respondents indicated that they preferred to be out of school before June.

Once Collaborative Solutions created options reflecting a variety of preferences, stakeholders were asked to prioritize the options provided. At their meeting in March, Collaborative Solutions read all of the comments, and made modifications to the highest ranked calendar based on comments provided.

The final recommendation for the 2022-23 calendar Garfield Re-2 School Board included:
  • 149 Student Contact Days
  • Beginning school on August 15, 2022
  • A full week for Thanksgiving Break
  • Two full weeks for Winter Break
  • Return to school on January 3, 2022
  • Removing President’s Day as a holiday
  • Spring break the last week of March to align with Roaring Fork School District
  • Ending School on June 1, 2023
  • The 2023-24 reflects an identical configuration with school beginning August 14, 2023 and getting out May 30, 2024.
These drafts will be put into a final format for distribution prior to the end of the school year.
