Main Points

​​The CMS Calendar committee, consisting of parents, community members, teachers, principals, assistant principals, students, staff from various administrative departments and a Board of Education member, began meeting in February and developed two recommendations for the 2018-2019 school year. A preference poll for staff and the community was conducted online from March 16-23, 2017. Over 9,000 employees, parents, students and community members expressed their preference for Calendar Option A and Calendar Option B during the online poll for the 2018-2019 academic calendar.

Both calendar options satisfies NC law which for 2018-2019 requires 185 instructional days or 1,025 instructional hours, 11 holidays, 10 annual leave days and the number of teacher workdays necessary to constitute an overall calendar of 215 days.
