In a meeting Tuesday, February 18, the Guam Education Board voted to adopt the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school year calendars. In accordance with Public Law 31-019, the approved school calendars are inclusive of 173 School Days, 2 Teacher Work Days, 2 Parent-Teacher Conference Days, and 9 Professional/Staff Development Days.
The revised school calendars come as a result of proposals by the Guam Federation of Teachers and management. The change allows for sufficient makeup time in the event of natural or man made events that result in interruptions to normally scheduled school days and it supports the request of teachers for more professional development, collaboration, and preparatory time.
