DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- At its meeting Monday, the DeKalb County Board of Education voted to delay the implementation of the district's balanced calendar until the 2014-15 school year.

Instead it passed a traditional calendar. DeKalb

The proposed schedule includes:

  • 180 student-contact days
  • 189 teacher-contract days with the final day (Day 190) being comprised of four (two hours each/two per semester) conference nights during the year as scheduled by each local school
  • State-designated testing windows and dates
  • Concludes the first semester before the Winter Break in December which prevents students from returning from the break with final exams and End of Course Tests
  • Schedules Spring Break April 7-11, 2014.

The delay of implementation of the Balanced Calendar allows the district to explore additional calendar options and obtain further input from the community.

The full calendar can been seen on the board's website here.
