2013-14 School Calendar Now Online

The Parkway 2013-14 school year calendar is now available online. A district committee comprised of teachers and administrators met in the spring to develop the calendar and the board of education approved it in June. Calendar highlights include:

  • The first day of school is on Tuesday, August 13, with a four-day week for students and teachers.
  • Final exams before winter break
  • Spring break the third week of March, consistent with surrounding districts' breaks
  • Balanced semesters, with 89 school days in each
  • Replaces 2 full-day (8-hour) professional development days with 2-hour development sessions on eight days. Each will occur the first Wednesday of each month (except August and January). All schools will start 2 hours later than their regularly scheduled start times on these days.
  • The school year will end on Thursday, May 22, prior to the 2014 Memorial Day weekend.
