Public invited to comment on traditional school calendar
Three options will be considered through Jan. 11

Guilford County Schools' parents and community members are invited to voice their opinions on the district's proposed traditional school calendars for 2018-19.


Three options were presented to the school board at its Dec. 12 meeting. Each one includes a start date of Aug. 27, in keeping with state law that the first day of school is no sooner than the Monday closest to Aug. 26. The end dates vary but all meet the requirement to end no later than the Friday closest to June 11 (not inclusive of inclement weather days). Districts must also schedule 185 instructional days or 1,025 hours of instruction covering at least nine months.


Visit www.gcsnc.com to view the three proposed calendars. Email feedback to gcscomments@gcsnc.com or mail to Calendar Comments, Guilford County Schools, 712 N. Eugene St., Greensboro, NC 27401.


Non-traditional calendars will be developed after the traditional calendar is approved. Early release days will be added after all calendars are approved.
