    Hi there!

    I'm wondering when everyone starts their school year. About when do you end? There seems to be alot of variety.

    At our school, teachers report back August 30 and kids returen on Sept 7. We generally get out the last full week of June.

    I go back Wednesday. Students start the 17th and the last day of school for them is June 2nd. I think my last day is the 4th (which is a Saturday. That's our graduation.)

    Teachers start back on Aug. 17, the students start on Aug. 23, and school ends on June 3. (or whatever that Friday is.) Teachers usually have to report one additional day, which this year is a Monday. :(

    Our kids started August 5th, and we're scheduled to be out on May 12th.

    Of course, we've never gotten out on the scheduled day . . . EVER. We always have make-up snow days. The fewest number of days we've ever had to make up was 9. One year we missed 26. Last year we missed 18.

    Teachers started Aug. 5th. Students start Thursday (8/12). We're scheduled to get out May 19th. I think teachers have to come back the next Monday, but I haven't really looked at the schedule.

    Last year, we were supposed to get out May 21st but ended up tacking on 5 extra days due to snow. I don't understand why we don't have snow days built into the school year.

    Teachers start on August 19th. Students come back on August 25th. Students last full day is May 17th. They come to mass on May 18th and have closing mass. It takes about an hour and they are done. Teachers last day is May 18th.

    Teachers go Friday 8/20.
    Kids start Monday 8/23 with an hour and a half for grades 1-8... Tuesday is a full day for them, but meet-and-greet for PreK and K, who start Wed. 8/25.

    Last day for students is scheduled for Tues. 6/7. They have a half day that Monday and then go an hour and a half the last day. Teachers are allowed to leave 6/7 also, as soon as rooms are clean and check-out list is done.

    Teachers return August 23rd.
    Students return September 6, always the day after Labor Day.
    Last day for students is June 17.
    Last day for teachers is June 20.
    This is very typical for Virginia public schools.

    Our year is September 7 to June 30. In our division, teachers are not required to go back early, although a lot of us do. I'll be going back the week before. As well, teachers who teach elementary and middle schools have their kids right up until the June 30. I teach high school, so because of exams, my kids will be gone the week before.

    So interesting the differences in each state! I can't believe that some of you get paid for just one day before the ids report, yikes! We get 3.

    teachers: August 31 - June 17th
    students: September 7 - June 15th

    We go 3rd week of August until 2nd week of June.
    This year, due to budget cuts, we do not have any paid days before school starts. Our work year is officially 180 days now and our pay went down to match.
    And we never have days after the kids either--they leave at noon on the last day, and we turn in grades at 3. But I don't know how the more experienced teachers get everything else done at the same time. So far, I have always had to go back to pack up, turn in all my teacher editions, etc. I haven't yet been in the same room twice so packing takes unpaid time.

    In my ideal world, we would have kids start the Tuesday after Labor Day, and we would have 3 days for planning and professional dev. before that. I think it is really bad that we won't have even an hour meeting scheduled as a department until after school starts. I don't know how we can plan together or collaborate if we don't schedule time for that.

    School starts for me on September 12 (as long as Ramadan is over) and for the kids on September 15. The kids end sometime in June, and I end sometime in July. Last year, the teachers went for 6 weeks with no kids. When I asked what they did, I found out that it varied greatly by school, some had coffee and tea and chatted, and others had professional development during that time. My start and end times as well as breaks will vary greatly by the lunar calendar and the holidays that revolve around it. It will be a great adjustment, for sure!

    Always the day after Labor Day until the Wed before Memorial Day.
    We run a VERY tight calendar.
    Some may recall that we have half days on Dec 24th.
