Prince William County Schools seek parent input for next year's calendar

Last Day to Provide Input on PWCS 2022-23 Calendar

Survey closes Oct. 12


Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) would like your input about options for the 2022-23 school calendar. This brief 2022-23 School Calendar poll provides you with the opportunity to share your feedback.

Parents, students and PWCS employees are encouraged to participate in the survey. 

Keep in mind that the calendar must begin with at least 180 school days. The year is divided into four relatively equal marking periods. Attempts are made to minimize weeks with only a few days of school when possible. We provide multiple student holidays within the calendar, along with winter and spring break.

Two calendar options have been developed based on the current calendar and feedback on previous calendars. Both options start on the same date, but there are a few differences within the calendars relative to winter break and the end of the first semester. Calendar options will be presented to the School Board for discussion and approval in November.

Results from this poll, as well as recommendations from a representative calendar committee, will be provided to the Board to inform their discussion and decision. Please take a moment to answer these few questions to provide your preferences by October 12.

HIGHLIGHTS- Bristow Beat

There are very few differences between Options A and B for the 2022-23 school calendar. Should the school board approve one of the two, school will begin on Aug. 22 or 23. Teachers will reporting to school on Aug. 15 or 16.

Winter Break will begin on Dec. 19, 20 or 21. 

The 2022-23 calendar has Spring Break as beginning on April 3. Students will return to school the Tuesday after Easter. Teachers will have a work day that Monday. 

The last day of school will be June 15 or 16.
