Board Considers Draft 13-14 Calendar
The draft calendar can be found here. Although there are local variations, the proposed calendar conforms to the regional pattern, designed to coordinate issues of transportation, interscholastic competition, and various regulatory requirements. Comments and suggestions for improvement should be directed to the Superintendent of Schools.
In the proposed calendar, school begins immediately after Labor day, with a 10:00 AM start. The starting date reflects local contractual obligations and the fact the school days prior to Labor Day typically do not qualify for state aid. The end date is determined by the state-determined Regents testing schedule; the Commissioner of Education has set the Regents rating date on June 26, 2014. The entire school year encompasses 182 days for students plus three conference days for teachers.
