NEW Adopted Calendar
Beginning in the 2023-2024 school year, Adams 12 Five Star Schools will adopt a new school calendar.
For the past year, Adams 12 Five Star Schools has been carefully evaluating its school year calendar to assess how and if it could be changed to better serve our community and further our commitment to academic excellence.
The district’s Calendar Study Committee – a group that includes students, parents, and certified, classified and administrative staff – has spent the 2022-2023 school year researching calendars from other districts, state requirements for instructional days and time, and pored over feedback from the Five Star community. The Five Star community was surveyed in February 2023 on the two calendar options presented.
Please note that charter schools follow their own calendars. If your child attends a district-managed charter school, please contact your school’s leadership team with any questions.
