LPS students to get an extra day of instruction in the 13-14 school year

During its June 6, 2013, meeting, the Littleton Public Schools Board of Education approved an amended calendar for the 2013–2014 school year that adds an extra day of instruction. February 14, 2014, will now be an instructional day for students and staff -- a regular school day --  instead of a furlough day for all students and employees. Adding the additional instructional day back into the calendar is part of the Board’s recent agreement with the Littleton Education Association. The November 25, 2013, furlough day will remain.

Access the revised 2013–2014 calendar on the right.

Furlough days were incorporated into the school-year calendar as part of the district’s budget reduction strategies a few years ago. On furlough days, there is no school, employees do not work, and employees do not get paid.

Calendar Values

The LPS Board of Education has in place a set of Calendar Values from which the development of the school calendars continues to be based (Policy ICA-E). Overall, the calendars are designed to provide flexibility for school sites and continued support for the community to plan family activities and events. This calendar:

  1. Supports and enhances quality education and a high level of academic achievement.
  2. Meets or exceeds requirements of Colorado legislation regarding minimal school hours.
  3. Complies with Littleton Education Association (LEA) agreements.
  4. Supports parent/teacher conferences, professional preparation, and in-services.
  5. Supports a system-wide model, through embedded time, such as professional learning communities and professional development, for certificated staff to collaborate as appropriate regarding improving student achievement.
  6. Provides for overall coordination of schedules among the three levels - elementary, middle, and high school - to assist families with students across levels.
  7. Limits partial student contact days due to negative impact on educational programs and on family supervision needs (daycare).
  8. Is consistent with related current research and professional literature.
  9. Provides some building flexibility to address unique needs of their communities.
  10. Supports schedules for student participation in key assessment programs.
  11. Provides for approximately equal number of instructional days in each semester.
  12. Is consistent with expectations for vacation breaks: Thanksgiving, winter, spring, and summer.
  13. Supports, when possible, a school year calendar with first semester ending before winter break and second semester ending before Memorial Day.
