    Is there a way to access the DatePicker widget (and description text) that is used for navigation in the kendoScheduler? I'd like to change a few of its options.

    Hello Grant,

    You could get the Scheduler calendar text elements (there are two of them, one for narrow screens and one for wide) in the following way:
    var descriptionTexts = $('.k-i-calendar').siblings();

    While you could access the Scheduler embedded Calendar:
    var calendar = scheduler.calendar;

    Note that in order to obtain a reference to that Calendar, it needs to be initialized. This happens, when its pop-up is opened for the first time. Therefore, if you want to initially get reference to this widget, you will have to manually open and close the pop-up:
    $( document ).ready(function() {
        var scheduler = $("#scheduler").data("kendoScheduler");
      $('.k-animation-container').css('display', 'none');
        var calendar = scheduler.calendar;
      // Customize calendar here

    You could find a simple implementation in the following Dojo example.
