Thanks John. We are very excited to start gathering data and looking at options. I think our first step is to define what a 21st Century Calendar looks like. The we need to see some examples. It will be a great project.

Are we certain that 21st Century learning requires a calendar? I will happily concede that some things the school district does (football games, band concerts, pep rallies for teachers of non-academic subjects) require scheduling.

Learning, however, is best done asynchronously. Consider, for example, the current versions of the math pacing guides. Do they not seem to assume an extraordinarily homogeneous audience? Given the speed and opportunities of the modern world, should not our approach to time management reflect our heterogeneous reality?
