Seeking Parents to Serve On The Calendar Committee

The Jordan School District Board of Education is seeking parents to serve on a district calendar committee to help develop school calendars for next year and the years to come. Parent representatives who are chosen to serve on the committee will work with district staff to develop calendar options that will then be emailed to all parents in the district for feedback. The Board is expected to vote on a final calendar in December.

Serving on the committee will require attending meetings during the day, including an initial all-day meeting. The work of the committee will be completed in several meetings during the months of October and November.

If you are interested in serving as a parent on the district calendar committee, please complete the survey at the link below. If you know someone who may be interested, please encourage them to apply. One position is open per feeder system. We will contact all applicants to let them know whether they were selected. We look forward to hearing from you!
