The Newport-Mesa Unified School District is Seeking Your Input - Newport Mesa Moms

As some of you know, the Newport-Mesa Unified School District is considering a shift to a collegiate calendar.  This means that, IF APPROVED, the school year would begin in August, well before the Labor Day holiday.  One of only a few districts in the area to have kept the traditional calendar, Newport-Mesa is now seeking input from the school community before making a decision.  Even if your kids are not yet at the secondary level (grades 7-12), this potential change in the calendar will affect you.

The District has done a great job of setting up various Information Meetings so that questions can be answered.  There are many factors to consider.  Click HERE to read a brief summary of the benefits and concerns of switching to a collegiate calendar.

A few things to know in advance:

  • If a collegiate calendar is approved, the earliest it would take effect is the 2019-2020 school year.  A traditional calendar has already been adopted for the 2018-2019 school year.
  • A survey will be available from November 1-15th.  You may find it at
