Approved 2022-23 Academic Calendar

The 2022-23 ADM Academic School Calendar was reviewed and approved by the ADM Board of Education on Monday, January 10, 2022. 

All elements of the approved calendar remain the same as what was shared with families and staff, with the exception of the following change made based on feedback received.

  • Change: Winter Break Extended By One Day
    • Winter break has been extended one additional day from the originally proposed calendar, beginning with an early dismissal on Wednesday, December 21, 2022, rather than an early dismissal on Thursday, December 22, 2022.  
    • This change provides students and staff with a winter break that is the same length as was experienced in this school year’s school calendar.
