LAUSD Approves Instructional Calendars with Shorter Winter Breaks for 2023-2026!


FUN WITH KIDS IN LA

The Los Angeles Unified School District has passed new instructional calendars for the 2023-2026 school years. The calendars aim to address concerns about "learning loss" and provide more summer learning opportunities. The Superintendent, Alberto M. Carvalho, explained that the new schedules include a shorter winter break and extended summer programing.

The decision to shorten the winter break was made in response to feedback from parents who requested it through a series of surveys. Many parents expressed concerns that the district's long winter break created a childcare challenge for working families and put students at a disadvantage compared to other Southern California school districts. These districts tend to have shorter winter breaks than Los Angeles over the last two years.

Board President Jackie Goldberg explained that the new schedule tries to balance the needs of students who benefit from time in the classroom, adults in schools who deserve time to rest and rejuvenate, and parents who often have to scramble for childcare during the third week of vacation. The revised calendar brings the district in line with most school districts in Southern California.


The board's decision to adopt an instructional calendar so many years out may seem unusual, but proponents of the decision argue that it provides families with enough time to schedule childcare and vacations and allows the district to budget well in advance.

 
 



Board Member Kelly Gonez, who is also a mother of a Los Angeles Unified student, noted that the adoption of a multi-year calendar provides helpful certainty for families and staff. When the school community knows when school will be in session, they can better plan for their families.
