KASB Calendar Survey for 2017-2018 school year releasedScott Rothschild
The KASB Research Department has released the 2017 Calendar Survey Annual Report. This year’s report is an expanded look into the data compared to previous years.
The survey report, based on data collected from Kansas public school districts, includes information on the length of the school year and day, hours and days teachers are contracted to work, holidays, opening and closing dates for the school year, kindergarten programs and high school scheduling.
The report contains both state averages and the information on the variety of scheduling choices made by local school boards. Most of the information is available in the same format back to the 2001-02 school year. This year’s report also includes a description of “The Average Teacher Experience,” which describes what a typical school year is like based on the most common responses to the survey.
