District Calendars for Students and Staff

  • Guilford County Schools offers great options and choices for our students, from extended-year schools to high schools located on college campuses. Our range of choices means students may be on different academic calendars. For example, early and middle college students take classes at local universities, so those schools follow a calendar similar to the university calendars. 

    How are GCS calendars created? 

    North Carolina law lays out specific guidelines for school district calendars. Details include requiring schools to start no earlier than the Monday closest to Aug. 26 and to end no later than the Friday closest to June 11. Read more about state laws and regulations governing school calendars.

    In GCS, academic calendars are developed every other year in the late fall of even-numbered years. Following policy 3300 School Calendar and Time for Learning, draft calendars are created with the input of a diverse calendar committee, comprised of parents, community/faith representatives, teachers, principals and district personnel. After the proposed calendars are vetted by the calendar committee, they are reviewed by the Guilford County Board of Education for first reading, followed by a period of public input before final adoption. Following the adoption of the traditional calendar, the administration creates calendars for the extended year and early/middle college schools for the consideration of the board.
