2012-13 Calendar Now Online

The Parkway Board of Education approved the 2012-13 school year calendar and it is available online. A district committee comprised of teachers and administrators met in the spring to develop the calendar.

Calendar highlights include:

  • First day of school on Tuesday, August 14, 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 and 91 school days in the first and second semesters, respectively
  • Replaces 2 full-day (8-hour) professional development days with 2-hour development sessions on eight days. Each would 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.
  • Designates Friday, March 29, 2013 as a “no school” day
  • The school year would end just prior to the 2013 Memorial Day weekend.
