Public School Calendar for 2007-2008

June 21, 2007 – The 2007-2008 School Calendar is now available for parents, educators and interested persons. It contains information regarding important public school student and personnel reporting dates, marking period schedules, holidays and observances for the upcoming school year, according to a press release from the V.I. Department of Education.
"The VI Department of Education's public school calendar has been developed to ensure that Virgin Islands students receive a quality education designed to promote their social, emotional, and academic achievement," said Acting Education Commissioner Dr. Lauren Larsen. "A territory-wide calendar is one on which the days of operation are universal to all public school buildings and school-based programs within the territory of the Virgin Islands, including the beginning and ending dates of the school year and all vacation days. However, the individual public school buildings and school-based program hours of operation may vary on the universal days for activities such as staff development and parent-teacher conferences."
She added that the school calendar is self-adjusting to accommodate make-up days necessitated by severe emergencies. No individual public school has the authority to deviate from the school calendar without the express approval of either the district superintendent or the commissioner of education.
The 2007-2008 school year begins with the return of students on Monday, Aug. 27, 2007. Parents and guardians are reminded that at the start of the academic year, announcements related to individual school orientations will be made.
Copies of the school calendar will be available at the Superintendents' offices in each district or you can click on the links below and print them.
