For the 2020-2021 school year, Barcroft will follow the traditional calendar. School will start Tuesday, September 8, and will initially begin through online instruction only. Be sure to check the APS website for the latest updates regarding instructional delivery.
The Modified School Year Calendar (MSYC) reorganizes the school year to provide more continuous learning by dividing the long summer vacation into shorter, more frequent breaks. It does not eliminate the summer vacation, but merely reduces it. The MSYC is an alternative schedule for learning. Students on a MSYC attend the same classes and receive the same amount of instruction as students on the traditional calendar. The MSYC is designed to provide a 182 instructional day school year (beginning in August and ending in June) while creating the flexibility to extend the school year to 207 days through two optional intersessions scheduled during the year.
