On Tuesday, November 6, 2018, the Sarasota County School Board voted to make the proposed 2019-20 and 2020-21 school year calendars available for public comment before they are finalized and adopted. Parents, students, staff and members of our community are encouraged to visit the school district’s website: to view the calendars, which take into consideration various breaks and student testing. 

A committee composed of parents, administrators and teachers developed the recommended calendars. For each school year, school would begin the second Monday in August and conclude after Memorial Day. In addition, the proposed calendars would provide a full week off for Thanksgiving instead of the three-day holiday break currently observed by students.

Comments and feedback can be sent to the school district via email to:

The deadline for the public to convey thoughts and feedback regarding the proposed calendars is noon on Monday December 10.
