2018-19 School Calendar Approved

The Denver Board of Education tonight (Thursday, Dec. 21) adopted the 2018-19 School Calendar proposed by the Calendar Advisory Committee. Key items include:

  • Classes for most DPS schools start Aug. 20.
  • Classes for most DPS schools end May 31.
  • Students and educators at most DPS schools are off for full weeks at Thanksgiving, Winter Break and Spring Break.
  • Parent-teacher conferences have been renamed family conferences to reflect the diversity of our students’ home situations.

While this calendar applies to most DPS schools, some schools — district-run, including innovation, and charter — may vary their schedules. Please check with your individual schools to confirm days off. For the current 2017-18 school calendar, please visit our resources page.
