As of now the LAUSD start date for school year 2012/2013 is August 15th, 2012. A group of westside parents and educators has started a petition to extend the start date by 1 week, until August 22nd, for the complex of LAUSD schools that includes Palisades Elementary, Marquez Elementary, Canyon Charter Elementary, Kenter Elementary, Topanga Elementary, Paul Revere Middle School and Palisades High School. The new start date allows the kids to complete their finals before the winter break (a major reason for pushing the start date to the middle of August in the first place) and gives families one more week of summer vacation, a desire many families share. The purposed date also brings complex schools into alignment with other area schools (Santa Monica/Malibu and most Independent schools) who will begin their 2012/2013 school year on August 22nd. You may sign the petition here.
