Next year's school calendar

Here are the main dates for next school year. The whole calendar will be available in late April:

  • First day for students: Wed Sept 3
  • Statewide Inservice (no school for students): Oct 10
  • Winter break: Dec 22 - Jan 2 (return to school Jan 5)
  • Capstone trips (5th grade): March 5 - 20

Portland Public Schools (PPS), for 2014-15, is proposing to begin Sept. 2 and end June 12.  For 2015-16, they propose to start Aug. 27 and end June 8. They will continue to have 8 days per year with a  2 hour late start for teacher training.

For TIS, we aim to follow the PPS calendar where possible given our learning cycles and needs. We will continue to publish our full calendar in April of each year, and will alert parents earlier if we anticipate major changes.
