Over the next month the District Academic Calendar Committee will consider options for adopting a compressed calendar (wherein the students have more contact with instructors per day, for fewer days or weeks, with no loss of instructional time over the course of a primary term, i.e., fall and spring). Compressed calendars have become increasingly popular over the past several years. Currently over half (52.25%) of the 111 community colleges in California have adopted a compressed or alternative calendar. Three are exploring the option at this time.
Our intent is to modify our calendar for the 2015-16 year, but much remains to be done before that can occur. The ACC will be disseminating information as the project continues.
