School Calendar For Next Year Under Review

February 25th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

The Allegany County Public School System is currently accepting comments from parents, staff and the community regarding the adoption of a 2015-2016 academic year calendar.  Draft calendars are available for viewing on the school system’s website,, under the “Quick Link” section of the main page.

            Traditionally ACPS adopts its school year calendar by the March meeting of the Board of Education.  This year, however, calendar consideration is complicated by current state legislation, HB389/SB455, that would require school systems to implement calendars mandating a post Labor Day start for students.

For this reason, ACPS administrators have developed two potential calendars for next year, one with a regular start for students and one with a post Labor Day start.  Both draft calendars very closely mirror the 2014-2015 academic year calendar.

The public’s feedback is greatly appreciated.  Anyone interested in making comments they would like the school board to consider prior to adopting next year’s school calendar should email them to no later than Sunday, March 8, 2015.
