2011-12 school year to begin Monday, September 12

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

The Shoreline School District and the Shoreline Education Association, which represents District teachers, are pleased to announce they have completed successful negotiations on a new two-year contract. The new agreement will take effect Sept. 1, 2011 and be in effect through August 31, 2013. The teachers ratified the new contract on June 13 and the School Board on June 20.

Due to the recent budget cuts enacted by the Washington state Legislature, the new contract includes changes in the 2011-12 school year calendar from the one previously announced.

The first day of school has been changed to Monday, September 12, 2011. This is because the state has reduced funding for teacher salaries. As a consequence, the teacher work year will be reduced. However, the number of student school days will remain the same at 175.

Here are the 2011-12 calendar dates:

Sept. 12      First Day of School
Oct. 7         Non-Student Workday
Oct. 12-14  Elementary Parent Conferences
Nov. 11      Veterans Day
Nov. 23      Early Release Day
Nov. 24-25 Thanksgiving Break
Dec. 5         Non-Student Workday
Dec. 21-Jan. 3 Winter Break
Jan. 16        Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Jan. 30-Feb. 2 Elementary Parent Conferences
Feb. 3          Non-Student Workday
Feb. 20-24   Mid-Winter Break
March 19     Non-Student Workday
April 23-27  Spring Break
May 25        Early Release Day
May 28        Memorial Day
June 4          Non-Student Workday
June 22        Last Day of School

The District will send the 2011-12 wall calendar to families in August.
