Black Education Impact Conference 2019

The Black Education Impact Conference, an event designed to bring attention to Colorado’s educational culture gap and to encourage group and individual ownership of our youth’s education and development. Colorado youth from a variety of high schools including Rangeview, were in attendance, as well as parents and community members.

The conference provided an opportunity for interaction and discussion to:

  • Elevate proven best practices associated with enhancing Colorado’s African American/Black youth’s educational experiences
  • Build a network of support for our youth’s success
  • Engage students, families, educators, and administrators
  • Expose the black community to scholarship and funding resources

APS Board Approves 2019-20 and 2020-21 District Conventional Calendars

APS is pleased to release the 2019-20 and 2020-21 district conventional calendars.

In fall 2018, APS convened a Calendar Committee that included staff, parents and school leaders. At the Jan. 8 APS Board of Education meeting, the committee recommended calendars that are responsive to supporting student achievement.

The Board approved both calendars at the Jan. 22 meeting. Below are a few highlights for the 2019-20 school year.

  • First Days of School: Students in grades 1-12 will have a simultaneous start on Aug. 6. As we have done in the past, preschool and kindergarten students will start school the following week on Aug. 12.
  • Full-Day Professional Release: APS eliminated the half-day student early release to ensure uninterrupted learning. There are now five full professional release days held Sept. 27, Oct. 21, Dec. 6, Jan. 6 and Feb. 28, in addition to the district in-service day on Jan. 31.
  • Fall Break: APS will continue to have a full-week Fall Break held Oct. 14-18 with Oct. 11 and 21 slated as student non-contact days. It occurs at the end of first quarter to ensure uninterrupted learning.
  • Thanksgiving Break: APS will maintain a three-day Thanksgiving Break for students. It will be held Nov. 28-29 with Nov. 27 slated as a student non-contact day.
  • Winter Break: APS will continue to hold Winter Break at the end of December and the beginning of January. It will be held Dec. 23 through Jan. 3 with Dec. 20 and Jan. 6 slated as student non-contact days.
  • Spring Break: APS moved Spring Break from the last week of March to the third week of March. It will be held March 16-20.

Adjustments, such as the first days of school, were made to the 2020-21 district conventional calendar to accommodate for the leap year.

Please visit aurorak12.org/calendars to view the calendars, noting that individual school calendars may vary. Parents are encouraged to check with their child’s school for specific calendar information.
