2022-2023 School Hours

Posted by: Alex B   |   August 3, 2022

San Jose Schools has made revisions to its calendar for 2022-23 to increase the learning hours of its students. In the course of the coming school year, primary students will gain 50 hours of instruction, middle school students 100 hours, and high school students will receive 60 additional hours of in-school learning. Key differences in the schedule include the following:

  • All Primary students will be dismissed at the same time rather than staggering dismissal times for grades K-2 and 3-5.
  • Fridays are full days of instruction EXCEPT when school is closed for teacher work days. There will no longer be early dismissal days.
  • We have increased the number of teacher workdays spaced throughout the school year. On those days, there will be no students on campus unless they are enrolled in the aftercare program. More details will become available during orientation about before and aftercare opportunities.

Instructional Hours:

  • Grades K-2: 8 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. on Mondays – Fridays
  • Grades 3-5: 8 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. on Mondays – Fridays
  • Grades 6-8: 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Mondays – Fridays
  • Grades 9-12: 8:30 a.m. – 3:20 p.m. on Mondays – Fridays

Arrival:
Grades K-8 may begin arriving at 7:30 a.m. Students will be supervised from this time until instruction begins (when the classroom teacher assumes responsibility).

Grades 9-12 may begin arriving at 8 a.m. Students will be supervised from this time until instruction begins (when the classroom teacher assumes responsibility). Hours are the same at San Jose Prep and San Jose Early College at Cecil.

Before and aftercare will be available. Specific details including hours and pricing will be made available at the orientation events pertaining to your child’s grade level.
