2014-15 school calendar: Start early, end early

Those with school-age children wanting to get a jump planning vacations for the next two years can forge ahead with those plans. The Fayette County Board of Education last week approved the school calendar for 2014 with school starting Aug. 7, 2014, and ending May 22, 2015.

School system officials had more than 1,000 people respond to the two calendars previously posted on the website. Superintendent Jody Barrow said the best features of both proposed calendars were combined.

Effective for the next two school years, the 180-day calendar has school beginning on Thursday, Aug. 7.

The largest blocks of holidays will come for Thanksgiving break from Nov. 24-28, semester break from Dec. 22 through Jan. 5 and spring break from April 6-10.

Barrow noted that the first semester will conclude prior to the Christmas holiday.

The calendar has the last day of school on Friday, May 22, 2015, a full week before Memorial Day.

The calendar will span the next two school years to give parents the ability to plan into the future.

The unanimous approval of the calendar included a board OK for 10 teacher planning days.
