Four Day School Week Application Directions
Submit Your Annual Four-Day School Week Application by May 11, 2021
School districts operating a four-day school week (less than 160 scheduled days per school year) are required to submit a request for approval.
To be considered for the 2020-2021 school year, please complete the application via the Directory in Data Pipeline by May 11, 2021. Districts requesting approval are not obligated to follow their proposed calendar if their local planning is not finalized.
In addition to submitting the four-day application through Data Pipeline, districts Accredited with Priority Improvement Plan or Accredited with Turnaround Plan that are submitting a district-wide application for all schools within the district to be on a four-day school week need to submit the following additional information separately to Jhon Penn at firstname.lastname@example.org: a copy of their respective school calendars, building class schedules, assembly schedules, bell schedule including lunch time interval and professional development calendar.
CDE will review the additional materials for the use and prioritization of instructional time. The executive director of field services and the associate commissioner of school quality and support must recommend approval of the application before it is forwarded to the commissioner for consideration.

We encourage you to get your request in before the June 30, 2021 deadline. Failure to submit before June 30, 2021 could result in a denial of your request.
School Grade Change, New School Code and School Closure Submissions are due by June 30th of the current year. It is imperative that all districts/BOCES ensure that all schools have a CDE-issued school code by the beginning of a new school year, as of June 30th.
