The Cherokee County School Board during its regular meeting on August 15, 2013 unanimously approved two changes to the current school year’s calendar for students. As a result of the change, students will return from the Winter Holiday Break to classes one day earlier on Monday, January 6; and the last day of school will be one day earlier on Thursday, May 29. The move-up of the last day of school will allow all graduation ceremonies to all be held following the end of classes from May 29 through 31.
Three furlough days for school-year employees (down from eight last school year) due to continued State “austerity budget cuts” and a slowly recovering Local property tax digest also were set: Nov. 5, which is Election Day, when schools already were to be closed; and two post-planning days, June 3 and 4. Year-round and other CCSD employees have their three furlough days on different dates.
