                 Dates of legal holidays are outlined. (Education Code Sections 37220 and 79020)

SAN DIEGO COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION
Suggested School Calendar

School districts must operate 180 days of actual instruction and the state minimum required number of annual instructional
minutes (or the annual instructional minutes offered for the 1982-83 school year if greater) between July 1 and June 30 of each
school year. Calendars must have extra time built in for extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow days).

This suggested school calendar has excluded all of the winter vacation break. Districts can maximize average daily attendance
(ADA) by either including or excluding all or part of the winter vacation break from the calendar, which, in turn, adjusts the P-2
cut-off date (Education Code Section 37201). This may be done after the fact and revised attendance reports submitted.
Analyze by school site since the attendance pattern near the P-2 cut-off date affects the ADA. Districts should contact their
attendance software provider for instructions.
This suggested school calendar does not necessarily reflect the holidays observed by the County Superintendent of Schools.
Additional comments regarding holidays:
    (1) If a governing board does not designate September 9 known as "Admission Day" as a holiday for classified employees, the
        school board shall provide a substitute holiday (ECS 45206.5).
    (2) Schools may be closed on the fourth Friday in September, known as “Native American Day,” if the governing board, pursuant to
        a memorandum of understanding agrees to close schools for that purpose (ECS 37220.7).
    (3) Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day may be observed on the third Monday in January or the Monday or Friday in the week in which
        January 15 occurs (ECS 37220).
    (4) Lincoln Day may be observed on the Monday or Friday in the week in which February 12 occurs (ECS 37220).
    (5) Schools may be closed on March 31 known as "Cesar Chavez Day," or the appropriate Monday or Friday following or preceding
        that date, if the governing board, pursuant to a memorandum of understanding agrees to close schools for that purpose (ECS
        37220.5).
         Districts may revise the date upon which the schools of the district may close in observance of any of the holidays except for
         Veterans Day which must be observed on November 11 (ECS 37220e & 37220f). The governing board must approve a
         resolution for all holidays scheduled on alternative dates.
         Public Schools Week              Option of any week in April
         Day of the Teacher               Second Wednesday in May
