Ut Spring Break 2023 – We can do this by shortening Winter or Spring vacations, or going an extra week or two in June. The proposed schedule with these options was widely rejected by the public.
In the past, many customers have requested that we have a regular week for Spring Break – the week that includes April 1st – so they can plan more vacations. Sometimes Easter is in the middle of March, sometimes it is in the middle of April.

Many other holidays occur in the first semester so we do not extend it. We could cancel the fall break now as there is no UEA agreement, but representatives of the timetable committee feel strongly that students, the community and teachers want the break.

Why don’t we start in early August, and have a few weeks off for the rest of the year and go into June? Why can’t we start later, finish and shorten or eliminate vacation during the school year? Why don’t we start in September and go through the middle of June?
We get many such questions which have competing applications. Over the past few years, consumers have shown a consistent desire for a weeklong spring break and up to two weeks of winter break. The board starts by deciding on those two breaks and how long and then works back to meet the required number of school days. Many would like school to start in the second week of August because high school activities across the state begin then and there will be many days of school before the Advanced Placement exams. Many others would prefer to start in September when it is cooler and continue for a few weeks into June. The Board weighs these competing interests when making recommendations.
