Board seeks comment on proposed 2019-20 calendar
The Board of Education of the Davis School District is seeking public comment on the proposed 2019-20 school year calendar.
The link shows the calendar for both year-round and traditional nine-month school. Sand Springs and Buffalo Point Elementary are the only schools currently on year round. If you do not attend those two schools, please limit your comments to the traditional schedule.
The traditional nine-month calendar includes a start date of Tuesday, Aug. 20 and end date of Friday, May 29. The year-round calendar begins Thursday, August 25 and ends July 2. The draft calendar also schedules a two-week winter recess that runs from Dec. 23 through Jan. 6 for all schools, a weeklong spring break from March 30-April 3 for traditional nine-month schools and a Spring break April 1-3 for year-round schools.
E-mail comments to email@example.com. Comments will be taken until Friday, Oct. 26.
The Board of Education will consider comments when it meets Wednesday, Nov. 7 to consider adoption of the proposed calendar.
By law, the district has to provide students 990 hours of instruction.

Play a part in creating
the "No Hunger Zone"
By Asst. Superintendent John Zurbuchen
“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others” -Booker T. Washington
A significant element of education is the lesson learned through service to others. It is through such service that a connection is established between the giver and the recipient. That connection provides the spark through which the human experience is enriched.
The Davis Education Foundation was established to provide an avenue to assist in kindling that spark. The Foundation, through the leadership of Ms. Jodi Lunt along with her amazing staff, provides the avenue to connect community, businesses, and individuals to the support of our more than 72,000 students. These partnerships provide for an enhanced experience, socially, economically, and educationally for students, teachers, and schools.
This year, the Davis Education Foundation, along with partnerships with the Bountiful Food Pantry and the Davis Hospital and Medical Center, has focused on making Davis County a “No Hunger Zone.” According to Federal Government data, Davis County has over 16,000 students who are potentially food insecure.
