Board Approves Calendars for Next 3 Academic Years

The Board approved the calendars for the next three years.
 

With the new calendar format:

  • School starts mid-August and ends before Memorial Day
  • Students have a week off in October, at Thanksgiving and in March, with two weeks off at Winter Break 
  • The improvements would benefit students through increased time to get a teacher for every classroom, more time for preparing buildings, a longer summer break for school staff, and time to receive instructional materials prior to the start of school. 
The calendars can be found on the district website here: www.okcps.org/calendars
