One Page Summary 2016-2017 School Calendar

Starting with the 2016-2017 school year, school districts in Michigan must provide a minimum of 180 days of student instruction. For many districts including Western, this means having to add days onto their existing calendars. Over a year ago, the superintendents in Jackson County and their boards of education began talking about developing a "common calendar" for the county. After much discussion and receiving a waiver from the the State of Michigan to start before Labor Day, the common calendar for Jackson County is becoming a reality. We are very aware that not everyone likes the notion of starting school before Labor Day, but for many of us this is returning to what was done prior to the 2006 legislation. Regardless, the 180 day requirement exists and whether we add time onto the beginning or end of the school year it will shorten summer vacation.
