This chart is for collaborative planning. Each year teachers can use this to plan their curriculum individually or as a group. (per grade level) You will have to customize the pacing chart to your school calendar. The chart that you see is for school year 2016-2017 for Trimester 1. My school is broken down into three trimesters so I create one of these for each trimester. As you scroll through the chart you will see where holidays, early dismissals etc. are marked off. This is so as you plan with your colleagues you can easily create the flow of the curriculum. I hope this becomes useful for you as it has for so many others.
