New 2019-20 School Calendar Approved For Coweta County
From Special Reports
The Coweta County School Board has approved next year’s school calendars.
The calendars maintain 180 days of student instruction, divided into two 90-day semesters. The first semester concludes before the start of holidays in December to allow for high school course completion and final exams prior to the Christmas and New Year’s break.
The calendars also include:A Labor Day holiday
A 1-day October holiday in 2019/20, and a 1-day November holiday in 2020/21 coinciding with that year’s Presidential Election
A full-week Thanksgiving break
Two weeks for the Christmas and New Year’s break
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
A full-week mid-Winter break in February
A full-week Spring break in April
School-year end before Memorial Day
Two Teacher Work Days have been moved to March, to serve as possible inclement weather days in case of school closures that require student make-ups. They would be used as teacher workdays/student holidays otherwise. These replace the inclement weather make-up days previously scheduled during the February break.
