The Cobb County School District school calendar for 2016-2017 has been approved. The calendar that was chosen was option B, preserving fall break. The board also recommended keeping this same basic schedule each year, and always having two years of approved calendars available.
The calendar includes the required 180 school days or its equivalent. First semester includes 91 days and ends prior to Winter Holidays. Second semester includes 89 days, and ends prior to Memorial Day. Spring Break is scheduled during the first week following the first Sunday in April, providing consistency with other metro school systems. The school year ends on a Wednesday to provide enough time to schedule graduation ceremonies.
The version not approved, option A, is visible below for comparison.
