The Washtenaw Intermediate School District, the intermediate school district serving Washtenaw County's 10 public school districts, worked in cooperation with the Washtenaw Superintendents Association (WSA) to create a recommendation for the two required holiday breaks to be brought to the Washtenaw ISD Board of Education on January 22, 2008. In addition to the two legislated breaks, professional development day recommendations were also made.
On January 22, 2008, the Washtenaw ISD Board of Education held a hearing on the legislated Common Calendar and later took action on the proposal brought to them by the WSA at the board meeting following the hearing. The Board voted unanimously to adopt the proposed calendar as presented. View the adopted five-year common calendar guidelines for 2008-2012 or for 2012-2017.
Signed by Governor Jennifer Granholm into law on October 1, 2007, Public Act 101 requires that, by July 1, 2008, intermediate school districts, in cooperation with the local school districts they serve, adopt a common calendar. The calendar must:
- Be in compliance with sections 1284 and 1284b of the School Aid Act
- Identify the dates for at least the next five years when schools will not be in session for a winter holiday and spring holiday.
Common school calendars must be in place for the 2008-2009 school year. Districts operating on a trimester system may apply for a waiver. School districts who bargained a multi-year calendar prior to the legislation being enacted will not be required to implement the common calendar until the calendars that were bargained expire. This legislation also applies to public school academies (charter schools).
