Savannah Chatham public schools

Savannah-Chatham School Board members approved modifications in July to the academic calendar for the 2020-21 School Year due to COVID-19.

The calendar modifications include a delay in the start of the school year. The approved calendar modification allow teachers to return August 3, 2020 and students to begin instruction virtually on August 19, 2020.

The twelve intervening staff days would be dedicated to preparing all educators to deliver effective online instruction and face to face instruction as well as address other matters related to social emotional learning, hygiene protocols, student/family support services, accountability procedures, and revised Title IX regulations. The modified calendar:
• Offers 170 days of instruction
• Provides 12 days of pre-planning and training before the first day of instruction
• Begins the school year on Wednesday, August 19, 2020
• Begins the school year in a virtual “E-Learning” Districtwide model
• Adds two staff planning days for teachers at the end of the school year
• Includes the strategic use of Districtwide “E-Learning Days” on the November 3, 2020 Election Day, at the start of Second Semester, and after St. Patrick’s Day
