Balanced Calendar

In 2012-13, Foothills adopted a Balanced Calendar. The decision to move to a Balanced Calendar was made based on research that this approach:

  • increases personal and social development among children at all ages;
  • reduces the need for content "refresher" time at the beginning of the school year;
  • increases faculty satisfaction;
  • provides the calendar framework that supports Project Based Learning in every season of the year.
The Calendar for the 2012-13 school year is as follows:
  • August 20: First Day of School K-9
  • August 20-October 12: Academic Quarter 1
  • August 20: First Day of School K-9
