Sat, Mar 5 10:54am

Below is a message (sent today) from Sam Davis, Vice President of the OUSD Board of Directors, regarding a recent development in the calendar for the 2022-2023 school year. It was previously communicated that the tentative start date for the 2022-2023 school year would be August 15 but that has now moved up to August 8.  The Board is expected to vote on the calendar in their meeting this coming Wednesday.  Please see below.

"I just learned that OUSD renegotiated the start date for the first day of school with OEA in order to comply with district payroll and pension rules. The new agreed start date is Aug. 8, 2022. The calendar is expected to be approved by the Board next Wednesday.  A previous agreement had school starting a week later, but that has changed.

The full calendar will be posted on the board agenda tomorrow afternoon, with winter break from Dec. 19, 2022 to Jan. 2, 2023, and a professional development day on Jan. 3, 2023.

I apologize to those who made plans based on the earlier agreement, that will need to change.

Sam Davis"
