Boise, ID -- 10/09/2017 -- During its regular monthly Board meeting held on Monday, October 9, 2017, Trustees of the Boise School District voted 7 - 0 to approve the 2018 - 19 school year calendar following an extensive public feedback process.
The approved calendar preserves a later August school start date while still ending the first semester prior to the Winter Holiday Break.
"We feel that this calendar meets the educational needs of our students and supports our many programs that have made our district a school district of excellence," said Board President Nancy Gregory. "We are grateful to the parents, patrons, staff and students who actively engaged in the nearly six-month long conversation regarding the school calendar through face-to-face focus groups, online surveys and direct communication with District representatives."
