Board of Education Approves Instructional Calendars

LOS ANGELES (Dec. 12, 2017) -- The Board of Education today approved instructional calendars for the next three school years that start classes before Labor Day and give students a week off at Thanksgiving and a three-week winter break between first and second semester.

In approving calendars through 2020-21 instead of for a single year, board members said they hoped to provide stability by allowing families and employees to plan activities well in advance.

The board followed the recommendations of District staff in approving the following calendars:

First semester – Aug. 14 to Dec. 14
Second semester – Jan. 7 to June 7
Winter recess – Dec. 17 to Jan. 4
Spring recess – April 15 to 19

First semester – Aug. 20 to Dec. 20
Second semester – Jan. 13 to June 12
Winter recess – Dec. 23 to Jan. 10
Spring recess – April 6 to 10

First semester – Aug. 18 to Dec. 18
Second semester – Jan. 11 to June 10
Winter recess – Dec. 21 to Jan. 8
Spring recess – March 29 to Apr. 2*

*March 26, 2021 will be an unassigned day, meaning schools will not be in session, in observance of Cesar E. Chavez's birthday. 

The calendars also include school holidays for Admission Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents’ Day and Memorial Day.
