As part of the July 9 meeting, the Calloway County Board of Education amended the 2020-2021 school calendar. The amended calendar moved the first day of school for students to Monday, August 24, 2020. This changed will provide additional time for planning and preparation to reopen school and allow the district to participate in the Variable Student Instructional Year Calendar (VSIY). The VSIY allows the district to achieve at least one thousand sixty-two (1,062) hours of instructional time delivered on the number of student attendance days adopted by the local board of education. The amended calendar specifies 160 student instructional days for the upcoming school year.
With instruction beginning on August 24, Fall Break has been removed from the calendar. An additional week off from school was added during the first full week of January. Spring Break remains as scheduled on the original calendar from April 5-9, 2021. The last instructional day for students is scheduled for Tuesday, May 11, 2021.
