The OUSD School Year Shifted in 2018

  • On March 14, 2018, the Board of Education approved the 2018-19 school year calendar and the shift to beginning the school year earlier than in years past.


    The 2018-19 School Year was the first year that OUSD shifted to this earlier start date. The 2019-20 School Year followed suit, as did subsequent years, and OUSD continues with an earlier start date.


    Prior to this decision, the District distributed a community survey and held community meetings to discuss this potential shift. We thank everyone who shared their thoughts via survey and/or attended a community meeting about the New First Day.
