New 2019-2020 School Calendar Survey

Dear Members of our CMP Learning Community,

Thank you for participating in the recent Stakeholder Survey of the 2019-2020 School Calendar.  This survey was designed to gather input regarding the intersession schedule.

Of the 1400 respondents, there was great support for dividing the four weeks of intersession equally, with two weeks at Winter Break and two weeks during Spring Break.  Notably, there were also comments from the community with some common threads, as follows:

  • A preference for a later August start date (August 14, 2019 vs. August 7, 2019)
  • A preference for a longer Summer Break
  • A preference for a shorter Spring Break


A Message from the Executive Director

13 September 2018


Dear CMP Community,

As always, it is an honor to serve you as we celebrate the social, emotional and academic development of our children.  They seem to grow up all too fast!  I appreciate your support as we seek ways to enrich each of their learning experiences throughout these vital childhood years.

Did you know?  CMP conducts regular Board meetings throughout the calendar year.  One of the important functions of CMP’s amazing all-volunteer Board is to oversee the fiscal health of CMP.  At the September 10th Board meeting, Karl Yoder (Delta Managed Solutions) and I presented the network’s Unaudited Actuals.  The Board unanimously approved the Unaudited Actuals for each of our schools (CMP-CAP, CMP-EG, CMP-SJ and CMP-SS). 

The Board also approved an increase in the Personnel Pay Scale for CMP’s Maintenance/Security staff.  This decision impacts those personnel who serve CMP campuses that are not otherwise served by ‘District’ personnel.

The next CMP Governing Board Meeting will be held at the Shingle Springs Campus on Monday, October 8th.  The Board packet will be posted on our website in advance to the meeting.

Hope to see you there!

Gary S. Bowman

Superintendent/Executive Director, California Montessori Project
