2015-2016 School Calendar Approved

The San Mateo-Foster City School Board of Trustees has approved a common calendar for the 2015-2016 school year.

During the month of March, 17 forums were held throughout the District on the current school year calendars and the District's interest in having one calendar beginning in the 2015-2016 school year.  In addition to the forums which were attended by over 300 people, parents/guardians and staff were invited to take a Calendar Survey.

The District would like to recognize and appreciate the hard word of all involved in putting a common calendar in place which represents the interests of students, teachers and parents.

Current year calendars are also available on the District Calendar page.
