The Coweta County Board of Education adopted a 2016-2017 school calendar at its meeting on January 13.
Following the board’s adoption of the 2015-16 calendar at its December meeting, the next two academic year calendars are in place for the Coweta County School System.
Both calendars can be viewed online at the school system’s website at www.cowetaschools.org.
The two calendars were adopted following public review and surveys on proposed calendars. Both calendars maintain a school year with 180 days of student instruction divided into two 90-day semesters, with the first semester ending before the December holidays to allow for full course instruction and testing prior to the long student break. In addition to maintaining student holidays similar to the school system’s current year calendar, the 2016-17 school year will include a teacher work day/student holiday on the Presidential Election date in November, 2016, to avoid student attendance during the traffic and congestion at many schools on that day.
Pdf versions of the calendars are attached to this release. A direct link to the two calendars online is www.cowetaschools.org/index.php/component/content/article/574-coweta-county-school-system-calendars-adopted-for-2015-16-and-2016-17-school-years.
