School Calendar Change
Fulton County Schools Parents,
Superintendent Jeff Rose recently recommended a change to the district's 2018-2019 School Year Calendar. At its August meeting, the Fulton County Board of Education voted to approve that recommendation.
This school year, November 6, 2018 has been changed from a regular school day, to a teacher work day. March 8, 2019 has been changed from a teacher work day, to a regular school day.
The decision alleviates safety concerns raised by some parents and staff, allows for additional staff training on safety protocols, and maintains instructional time for our students. Additionally, the Fulton County school board has expressed interest in addressing a long-term solution through the legislative process by removing schools as polling places.
The revised calendar is posted at this link. In addition, the district is re-printing the calendar and distributing the new version to families to eliminate any confusion. We have asked each school to also post the calendar to their website and send reminders of these changes using our telephone calling system.
