The first day of the 2016-17 school year for students is Tuesday, Sept. 6 and the School Board is already preparing to approve calendars for the following two school years. Proposed calendars for 2017-18 and 2018-19 were presented to the board Aug. 15 and are expected to be approved at the board’s next regular meeting Sept. 12.

Both of the proposed calendars are similar to the upcoming school year, with 171 days of school for middle school and high school students, and 169 days for elementary students. The two-day difference is to provide time for summer literacy assessments in late August for all elementary students. Also in both calendars, school begins the Tuesday after Labor Day, winter break lasts less than two weeks, spring break is the last full week of March and school ends the first full week in June.
