New! 2015-16 Official School Calendar
Click to view. The calendar was approved by the Board of Education on Dec. 2, 2014. Multitrack school calendars will be posted when they are ready.
The 2014-2015 Official School Calendar was approved by the Board of Education. As mandated by the "Reinventing Education Act of 2004," it applies to all schools except those on multi-track schedules and charter schools.
The 2014-2015 calendar will follow a 1-3-1 yearround model with a one-week fall break between the first and second quarters, a three-week winter break separating the first and second semesters, and a one-week spring break between the third and fourth quarters.
- Teacher work year: July 28, 2014 through June 4, 2015.
- Student instructional year: August 1, 2014 through June 3, 2015. (Please check with your school to confirm the first day of school for students).
To maximize instructional time, the Department of Education since 1991 has defined the earliest date for commencement exercises as "the first weekend preceding the last day of school for students." Therefore, commencement exercises for the Class of 2015 may be scheduled no sooner than Friday, May 29, 2015.
Calendars for upcoming school years are usually finalized and posted on this website in February.
