Helene Van Natter, elementary school director, said the traditional nine-month calendar includes a start date of Wednesday, Aug. 22, and end date of Friday, May 31. The draft calendar also schedules a winter recess from Dec. 21 through Jan. 2 and weeklong spring break from April 1-5.

Additionally, a professional development day for teachers has been set for Sept. 17. State School Board rules allow up to four regular school days to be used as professional development days. The district is using one of those.

On the year-round calendar, which currently is only for Sand Springs Elementary, two professional development days were scheduled.

Test dates and parent-teacher conferences will be added to the calendar in the spring.
