DCPS Soliciting Feedback on SY 2019-20 Calendar Proposals
DCPS is looking for feedback from the community on the SY 2019-20 calendar. The first
day of school will be Monday, August 26, 2019 for traditional calendar schools and
Monday, August 12, 2019 for extended year schools. Based on these starting dates, we
have developed proposals for the 2019-2020 school calendar and are inviting public
feedback. Please encourage your students, staff, and community members to review
the proposals on the DCPS website and share feedback by Friday, January 25.

• Friday, January 11th – 9:00-11:00 (Principal’s chat at 9:45)
• Saturday, January 26th – 9:00-12:00

Another good way for future Deal students to become familiar with the school is to
