Balanced Calendar Information
The Olympia School District is exploring the possibility of creating a more balanced school calendar. ​ Like a traditional calendar, a balanced calendar has the same number of school days (180). The difference is how the breaks are spread out. Instead of a calendar dominated by a very long summer break, students could have more periodic, longer breaks throughout the school year and a shorter summer break. ​ Learn more about the Balanced Calendar work to date, including links to spring 2022 Balanced Calendar survey results, committee meeting summaries, research, and frequently asked questions on the Balanced Calendar webpage.
