    I know...you probably don't want to think about it at this point, but I'm wondering when you'll start school for the 2012-2013 school year and which state or region you're in. Thanks! :)

    I start on July 31st because I'm a new teacher to the district. Kids start August 13th. So early- my current district doesn't start until early September! I'm in Colorado.

    Aug. 13-we get out June 12. I was surprised at the people who have students who don't go 180 days. I know years ago I taught where they went less, but thought things had changed for the USA. May be a state/district thing.

    Our last day is Friday.

    Students come back August 13th. We'll probably go back August 1 (we have meetings, then several events like back-to-school meetings on the days in between).

    I'm in Indiana

    The kids come back August 6th this year.

    I'm in Kentucky.

    Last year we started August 1st, which is probably the day teachers have to start this year. I haven't looked yet.

    We got out May 11th, and I haven't looked back!

    Schools in the NYC metro area tend to start a day or two after Labor Day.

    We do a mandatory week of freshman orientation before that, so I go back the Tuesday before Labor Day.

    Iowa: Teachers August 13, students August 16 in my district. State law is also supposed to be after Labor Day, but nearly every district applies for a waiver to start early!

    Just had to add this because I'm too excited! Construction has started on our new building as of yesterday!!!!!!! :D:D:D Asbestos removal starts in our current building on Tuesday!!

    Kids start July 5th. It's a year round school. My kiddos will be ending Kindergarten June 29th (Friday) and starting first grade with me the following Thursday! This is my first year teaching, and it's the school's last year on a multi-track year round calendar - they're going to traditional after that.

    I'm starting a new school next year and they haven't given me the new calendar (maybe I'll check the site to see if it's on there). All I know is early August.

    August 1st for teachers, 5th for students. My district is in Western NC. Our delightful Republican controlled legislature has decided that they will not pay teachers in any starting month where they do not work the entire month. If teachers did not come back in the first week of August they would not get a paycheck until the end of September!

    This will become standard next year! Sheesh!
