BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Phineas and Ferb get 104 days of summer vacation but students in the Palm Beach County School District this year may get just under 50. The proposed calendar to be discussed during Wednesday’s School Board meeting calls for just 49 days.
School is set to end June 18th and then restart on August 10th. Summer break for teachers is even shorter, with school ending later and starting earlier.
The Palm Beach County School District started several weeks later than usual in 2020 due to COVID, then extended the school year to June 18th to make up for the late start. But instead of switching to a permanent schedule that mirrors most of the mid-Atlantic and northeast, school district leaders appear set on returning to a May to August summer. That means a very short break this year.
If approved, the new calendar includes just eight days off for winter break, one week off in the spring, and a last of day school May 26th, 2022.
The proposed calendar is below. If you are reading in a news app and it does not appear, just click here.SDPBC_2021-22_Proposal_01
