Every few years, the school calendars for future years are deliberated and brought forward with staff and community input through negotiations for approval by the Board of Education.
In accordance with the collective bargaining agreement, representatives from the Palo Alto Educators Association (PAEA), the California School Employees Association (CSEA), and the District meet to develop and negotiate employee work calendars.
