Board to vote on 2017-18 calendar

Most schools would begin the 2017-18 academic year on Monday, Aug. 14 and end it on Wednesday, May 23 under a calendar that the Board of Education is to vote on next month.
Thanksgiving break would run from Wednesday, Nov. 22, to Friday, Nov. 24, 2017, while winter break, for most students, would run from Monday, Dec. 25, 2017, to Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018. Spring break for most schools would extend from Monday, March 26 to Tuesday, April 3, 2018.
A small number of schools start or end the year earlier. And year-round schools, which take breaks throughout the year, have a separate calendar.  
The board conducted a public hearing on the calendar Tuesday and, by law, must wait 30 days before voting on it. Another public hearing will occur May 24, with the board expected to vote the same night. To view the 2017-18 calendar click here.
