• 2020-2021 Calendar Delayed
     
    The District is delaying development and approval of the 2020-2021 calendar until later this fall. The Missouri legislature passed a bill that prohibits local school districts from setting an opening date for the school term that is more than 14 calendar days prior to the first Monday in September. The legislation, which is HB 161 and was attached to an omnibus education bill passed on the last day of the legislative session, was signed into law by the governor. 
     
    Classes for the 2020-2021 school year will begin on Monday, Aug. 24, 2020. The District is working on developing the framework for the remainder of the calendar while also evaluating how the new law might impact delivery of curriculum, especially semester classes at CHS/WMS and the practice of scheduling first semester exams at CHS before Winter Break. Look for updates on the 2020-2021 calendar this fall.
