The Calendar Standing Committee voted to recommend a Fall 2014 calendar, fearing that recommending a full year calendar would overstep its boundaries as the District awaits a decision on its appeal of a legal ruling requiring it to bring back winter intersession.

The Calendar Standing Committee voted unanimously to propose a model calendar for the 2013-14 year that includes a winter session at its special meeting on Tuesday.
