Calendar Development

The Worcester County Board of Education recognizes the importance of having staff, student, parent, and community input in the development of the school calendar. As a result, a calendar committee comprised of parents, teachers, administrators, and students is formed every year, charged with developing three calendar proposals for consideration.

In 2016, a committee of stakeholders created calendar proposals for the 2017-2018 school year.  During December 2016 and January 2017, input on calendar preferences was collected from parents, staff, and students. Survey results were presented to the Superintendent of Schools in January. Mr. Taylor considered survey results when recommending the Superintendent's Proposed 2017-2018 Calendar to the Board of Education at their February 2017 meeting.

Please view the survey results presentation below, and read the associated report here.


At the February meeting, the Board of Education approved the 2017-2018 School Year Calendar, which can be viewed by clicking the link below.
