SUBJECT

DRAFT of 2018-2019 Academic Calendar

RATIONALE

Attached is a draft of the proposed 2018-2019 academic calendar for review.  This calendar was developed by a committee composed of representatives from each of the five schools, a parent, an administrator, and a central office representative.  Each representative was charged with soliciting input from the constituents of their respective groups.

 

In developing the calendar, the goal was to complete first semester before winter holidays.  Prior precedent was used as the format for the development of the majority of the calendar.  The calendar includes the use of six bank days first semester and seven bank days second semester.  Three make-up days are included in the calendar on March 4, 22, and 25, 2019 and other possible make-up days will be added at the end of the year if necessary.  The calendar includes two days at Fall Break, two days at Spring Break and three days Spring Holiday.  A thirteenth holiday was added for twelve month employees in keeping with Alleghany County.
