Academic Calendar

Our academic calendar is established each year by the school board.  Development of the calendar is conducted by the board and the administrative team, along with input from members of the public through public hearings on the calendar.  Per state law, the school year must begin later than August 23rd, and include a minimum of 1,080 hours of instructional time.
