  • MUSD is excited to announce a change to the 2018-2019 school calendar to improve delivery of Professional Development/Staff Professional Learning while minimizing impact on instruction. Professional Development Day will now include a Pre-Service Day, prior to the start of the school year. Staff Professional Learning for certified and support staff will also occur on Friday, August 31, 2018 and January 18, 2019, decreasing time away from schools, classroom, and instruction during regularly scheduled school days.


    The 2018-2019 District school calendar reflects the same number of instructional minutes as previous years. The calendar reflects the end of the school year one day earlier than previous years. That means the Wednesday before Memorial Day will be the last student day and Thursday the last teacher work day. 


    1st Quarter 8/6/18 to 10/5/18 = 43 days

    2nd Quarter 10/15/18 to 12/20/18 = 46 days

    3rd Quarter 1/7/19 to 3/15/19 = 46 days

    4th Quarter 3/25/18 to 5/22/19 = 43 days

    Total = 178 days


    Governing Board Adopted June 14, 2018
