Broward School Board to Vote on Earlier Start Date in 2018

A proposal up for a vote before the Broward County School Board on Tuesday could mean an earlier start to the year for students in 2018.

School board members will vote on the proposed calendar for next school year, which would include starting the school year on Wednesday, August 15th. The current school year started on Monday, August 21st to continue the long standing tradition of starting on that day of the week.

The new schedule would allow for semester exams to be completed before winter break, while Thanksgiving break would take place from November 21st – 23rd and Spring Break would be from March 25-29, 2019. The last day of school would be scheduled for June 4th.

Students also would not have class scheduled during Election Day, on November 6th.
