District seeks members for calendar committee

Minneapolis Public Schools is recruiting people for a committee that will propose the district’s 2019-20, 2020-21 and 2021-22 calendars.

The district is looking for members who will represent various constituencies, including parents, students, teachers, staff and administrators. It says it will cap the committee at 25 members.

The committee will offer recommendations on everything from school start and end dates to the length of spring and winter breaks. The superintendent will subsequently make a calendar recommendation to the School Board, which will vote on it in November.

The committee will meet at the Davis Educational Services Center, 1250 W. Broadway Ave., on five Wednesdays in August and September. The district is asking applicants to commit to coming to all five sessions.

Visit mpls.k12.mn.us/district_calendar_committee to apply. Applications are due by June 30. Anyone with questions should call 668-0128.
