Statewide School Vacation Calendar

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

The state of Rhode Island is full of families affected by school district calendars. With it being such a small state, many families with school-age children have one or more parents who work in a different district than their child(ren) attend. The last few years, districts have been making impactful decisions regarding February and April (spring) break in particular. This not only affects childcare for families of younger school-age children, but also doesn't allow for families to spend much-needed vacations together. When we look at social-emotional needs being a priority for both students and teachers in education, this has an extremely negative impact. In addition, these varied calendars by district force excessive attendance issues. Sign the petition to express the need for RIDE to define a consistent calendar for districts across the state.
