FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Public Schools Superintendent Bob Tremblay has released a draft of the 2022-23 school calendar in anticipation of the School Committee meeting on February 2.
The school calendar is not official until approved by the 9-member elected School Committee.
“We have maintained a format that is consistent with the current school year, including an identification of major religious and cultural holidays, as well as professional development, no school, election, and no homework days. The district logo, colors and fonts have been updated to align with district branding. This calendar takes into consideration the many factors that impact the final version of the academic year, including contractual obligations, student learning time requirements, school day requirements, parent conferences, and professional development needs. Each of these factors were weighed carefully in collaboration with the Office of Teaching and Learning. The calendar has been reviewed by the Framingham Teachers Association leadership,” wrote Supt.
