Thank you for your responses to this survey! We will publish results soon!

This year the JVPS Calendar Committee is presenting three calendar options to the JVPS Board of Education on February 17, 2015.

One calendar is a "traditional" 180-day calendar, one is 45 days in session with 15 days on break, and the last is 60 days in session with 30 days on break. We would like your input on these calendars.

All three calendars meet the state guidelines of 180 instruction days for students. The 60/30 and 45/15 have been referred to as "year-round" school. "Year-round schooling is not an extension of the school year, but, rather, a reorganization of it. The summer break is usually broken up and redistributed throughout the year in relatively regular intervals." (ED Week, 2004).

Many schools that have moved to a 60/30 or 45/15 calendar have seen an increase in student achievement including North Valley Academy in Albuquerque, NM.

Please click this link to give your input about the calendar options presented.

(The survey closes February 12, 2015 at 6 am mountain time.)

Making New Mexico Students Competitive in a Global Economy

New Mexico, 44 other states, and the District of Columbia have adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).  The CCSS are a set of high quality-standards in mathematics and English language arts (ELA).  The CCSS also include reading and writing standards for social studies, science, and technical subjects.  You can read the CCSS here.  New Mexico decided to add an additional 15% of state-specific standards focusing on culturally relevant texts and instruction to the CCSS in ELA.  You can read these standards here

The New Mexico Common Core State Standards are a different approach to learning, teaching and testing that engenders a deeper understanding of critical concepts and the practical application of that knowledge. Developed by teachers and experts across the country, these standards prepare New Mexico students to be ready for college and competitive in both national and international job markets.
