Fall/Spring School Calendar

The 2019 Legislature voted to change the school calendar instruction time. Per NDCC 15.1-06-04, a school district shall provide for a school calendar that includes:

  • At least nine hundred sixty-two and one-half (962.5) hours of instruction for elementary school students (K-6) and one thousand fifty (1050) hours of instruction for middle and high school students (7-12).

These changes will significantly affect how you enter information when completing the STARS calendar reports. Detailed School Calendar Guidance was created to assist you with completing your calendar.

Due Dates:

  • Fall Calendar Due September 15
  • Spring Calendar Due June 1
