School Board approves 2014-15 Academic Calendar
Eliminates the week-long mid-winter break next year
The Seattle School Board Wednesday night approved the District’s 2014-15 academic calendar, which includes elimination of the week-long mid-winter break next year.
The mid-winter break will be reduced from a full Monday-Friday to four days over Presidents Day weekend – including the Monday, Feb. 16 for Presidents Day, which is already a holiday and a non-school day, and Tuesday, Feb. 17 following Presidents Day.
As a result of the shorter mid-winter break, the last day of school in 2014-15 will be earlier – Monday, June 15, 2015, assuming no snow make-up days. The yearly academic calendar is negotiated by teams from Seattle Public Schools and the Seattle Education Association.
The full calendar can be found at http://bit.ly/2014-15calendar
Key dates for 2014-15, which were announced in February and finalized Wednesday, include:
- Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2014: First day of school for students
- Tuesday, Nov. 11: Veterans Day
- Nov. 27-28: Thanksgiving holiday
- Dec. 22, 2014-Jan. 2, 2015: Winter break
- Jan. 19, 2015: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
- Feb. 16, 2015: President’s Day
- Feb. 17, 2015: One day off, as part of shortened Mid-Winter break
- April 13-17, 2015: Spring Break
- May 25, 2015: Memorial Day
- Monday, June 15, 2015: Last day of school for students, unless snow days come into play
