The Athens City School District will be required to move from a "Days" based calendar to an "Hours" based calendar for the 2016-2017 School Year. As required by Ohio Revised Code 3313.48, the Board will hold a hearing for the purpose of reviewing the draft calendar at the Regular February Board Meeting on Thursday, February 18, 2016 at Morrison-Gordon Elementary School.
Parents should be aware that the start and end times for school days will remain the same. Students will have the same number of days of school for the 2016-2017 as in prior years. Essentially, from a parent perspective, the Calendar is very similar with the exception of a slightly shorter Winter Break and the alignment of the Spring Break to coincide with the Ohio University Calendar.
