Instructional Calendars Approved

At its meeting earlier this week on Tuesday December 10, the Goochland County School Board approved the instructional calendars for the next three academic years.  Highlights of each of the three calendars include:

  • First day of school two weeks prior to Labor Day
  • Periodic breaks throughout the year for teacher professional days aligned with interim reports and the end of the nine weeks grading period
  • One designated fall parent conference day
  • No school on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving
  • Full two weeks of winter break
  • Spring break during the first full week of April to align with neighboring school divisions
  • Early dismissal on the last day before winter break and the last day of school
  • 180 instructional days for students
  • Designated make up days if needed
