Calendar Development (2016-2017)


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 2015, a committee of stakeholders created three calendar proposals for the 2016-2017 school year. Calendar Proposal #1 began before Labor Day, while Calendar Proposals #2 and #3 began after Labor Day. During December 2015 and January 2016, input on calendar preferences was collected from parents, staff, and students. Survey results were presented to the Superintendent of Schools in January. Dr. Wilson considered survey results when recommending the Superintendent's Proposed 2016-2017 Calendar to the Board of Education at their February 2016 meeting.

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


At the February meeting, the Board of Education approved the 2016-2017 School Year Calendar, which can be viewed by clicking the link below.
