Calendar Review Committee Recommendation

 

The Calendar Review Committee, comprised of certificated and classified staff, parents, district administrators, and employee bargaining units, typically develops calendar recommendations two to three years in advance of implementation. For the past few years, the Committee has discussed the concept of a collegiate calendar; the school year starting prior to Labor Day with the first semester ending prior to winter break.

 

Starting this fall, the Committee met five times to explore and consider a collegiate calendar. The Committee began by seeking anecdotal data from the school community which led to the attached Fact Sheet (Benefits and Concerns/FAQs). A survey was circulated to obtain input related to the concept of a Collegiate Calendar. Five information meetings were hosted to share and clarify particulars of the Fact Sheet and gather input from staff, parents and students.

 

The Committee carefully weighed these components prior to coming to a recommendation.  When reviewing the information gathered, the Committee found that the responses on the survey varied with overall results indicating most respondents did not support the move to a collegiate calendar. Analyzing subgroups from elementary, middle and high school respondents, there was a gradual increase of support for the change (please see attached survey results).  Comments collected during the information meetings identified multiple benefits for students, numerous concerns regarding heat in the classrooms of those schools without heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), and the timeline for implementation.  While there has been a systematic plan for HVAC installation since 2013, the plan beyond the summer of 2018 was not available during the time of the survey and information meetings. The complete installation plan for all remaining schools was shared during the November 14, 2017 Board Meeting (please see attached).

 

After extensive analysis and discussions, the Committee recognized significant student benefits of a collegiate calendar particularly when they reach the secondary level  and acknowledged the primary concern expressed by many stakeholders for HVAC to be installed at all school sites.  The Committee considered the new information provided in the HVAC plan to address the concerns regarding heat and explored ways to provide students the benefits of the collegiate calendar.  The Committee ultimately determined moving to a collegiate calendar was in the best interest of students. Implementing it three years from now would address concerns related to HVAC installation and create more time to plan for the transition.

 

The Calendar Review Committee has made the following recommendations and will meet to design the details of the calendars, which will move forward to the District and NMFT negotiation teams:

  • A traditional calendar for the 2018-2019 school year  (Adopted October 10, 2017)
  • A traditional calendar for the 2019-2020 school year
  • A collegiate calendar for the 2020-2021 school year

Upon completion of negotiations and approved by the Board of Education, the adopted calendars will be made public.

Recomendación del Comité de Revisión de Calendario

 

El Comité de Revisión de Calendario, formado por miembros del personal acreditado y de apoyo académico, administradores del distrito, y unidades de negociación de empleados, típicamente desarrolla recomendaciones de calendario con dos o tres años de anticipación antes de su aplicación. En los últimos años, el Comité ha tratado el concepto de un calendario universitario; en donde el año escolar comienza antes del Día del Trabajo y el primer semestre termina antes del descanso de invierno.

 

Comenzando este otoño, el Comité se reunió cinco veces para explorar y considerar el calendario universitario. El Comité empezó con la recolección de datos anecdóticos por parte de la comunidad escolar lo cual resultó en la Cartilla Informativa adjunta (Beneficios y Preocupaciones/Preguntas Frecuentes). Se circuló una encuesta para obtener aportes relacionados con el concepto de un Calendario Universitario. Se llevaron a cabo cinco reuniones de información para compartir y clarificar las particularidades de la Cartilla Informativa y para recolectar aportes por parte del personal, padres y estudiantes.

El Comité examinó cuidadosamente estos componentes antes de determinar una recomendación. Cuando se revisó la información recolectada, el Comité encontró que las respuestas en la encuesta variaban con los resultados generales indicando que la mayoría de los encuestados no apoyaba el cambio a un calendario universitario. Una vez analizados los resultados de los subgrupos encuestados de primaria, secundaria y preparatoria, hubo un aumento gradual en el apoyo al cambio (favor de ver los resultados de la encuesta adjunta).

 

Los comentarios recolectados durante las reuniones de información identificaron múltiples beneficios para los estudiantes, numerosas preocupaciones en cuanto al calor en las aulas de esas escuelas sin calefacción, ventilación, y aire acondicionado (HVAC por sus siglas en inglés), y la línea de tiempo de aplicación. Mientras que ha existido un plan sistemático para la instalación de HVAC desde el 2013, el plan para después del verano del 2018 no estaba disponible durante el tiempo de esta encuesta o las reuniones de información. El plan completo de instalación para las escuelas restantes se compartió en la reunión de la Junta de Educación el 14 de noviembre del 2017 (favor de ver la hoja adjunta).

 

Después de extenso análisis y conversaciones, el Comité reconoció los beneficios significativos a los estudiantes de un calendario universitario particularmente cuando alcanzan el nivel secundario y reconocieron la preocupación principal del HVAC y su instalación en todas las escuelas expresada por las partes interesadas. El Comité consideró la nueva información proveída en el plan HVAC que aborda el tema de las preocupaciones en cuanto a la calefacción y exploró maneras de proveer el beneficio de un calendario universitario a los estudiantes. Finalmente, el Comité determinó que el cambio a un calendario universitario era en el mejor interés de los estudiantes. La aplicación dentro de tres años abordaría las preocupaciones de la instalación de HVAC y crearía más tiempo para planificar la transición. 

 

El Comité de Revisión de Calendario ha hecho las siguientes recomendaciones y se reunirá para diseñar los detalles de los calendarios, lo cual se enviará al Distrito y los grupos de negociación de NMFT:

  • Un calendario tradicional para el año escolar 2018-2019 (Adoptado el 10 de octubre del 2017)
  • Un calendario tradicional para el año escolar 2019-2020
  • Un calendario universitario para el año escolar 2020-2021

Una vez que finalicen las negociaciones y sean aprobados por la Junta de Educación, los calendarios adoptados se harán públicos.

Dear Parents/Guardians:

 

Newport-Mesa Unified School District has partnered with Hanover Research, an independent research firm, to explore parents’ experiences with our district. The findings from this exploration will support the development of our district’s Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP).

 

As part of this exploration, Hanover Research will conduct a series of telephone interviews with parents. These conversations are designed to explore how parents engage with our district and their child’s school, and how parent engagement could be improved.

  

Participants will be selected at random and participation in these interviews is voluntary. However, it is important that members of the Newport-Mesa school community participate because only they can tell us about their perceptions and experiences. Please note that participation or non-participation will not affect any relationships you or your student(s) have with teachers, peers, or administrators. If you choose to participate, your responses will be kept anonymous.

 

You may be contacted by Hanover Research in the coming weeks to request your participation. If you have any questions or do not want to participate in these conversations, please email Hanover Research’s Content Director, Cate Keller at: ckeller@hanoverresearch.com or call 714-424-8919.

Newport-Mesa Unified School District Logo

Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) is considering a shift to a collegiate calendar to more closely align with neighboring school districts and local colleges. This shift would start the school year up to three weeks prior to the Labor Day holiday and end the first semester prior to the winter break.

 

As a unified school district, this decision impacts everyone; therefore, NMUSD is in the process of seeking input from the school community regarding the potential shift. Please see the Collegiate Calendar Fact Sheet link below. The Fact Sheet includes background information, dates for informational meetings, benefits, concerns/frequently asked questions and the survey link (survey will be available November 1-15).

 

Your input will help guide the Calendar Committee in developing their recommendation. The final decision is determined through the negotiations process and adopted by the Board of Education.
