Coweta County parents have an opportunity to weigh in on proposed school operating calendars for the next two years.
The Coweta County Board of Education anticipates adopting calendars for the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 school years at its Dec. 11 board meeting.
The board reviewed two versions of those calendars at its November board meeting, and has requested public comment on those calendars as it prepares to make a final decision.
The proposed calendar versions may be viewed on the school system’s website, at www.cowetaschools.org . An online survey may also be accessed from that site. The survey is open to public comment until Dec. 5.
Version 1 of the calendars has a shorter February (mid-winter) break, and starts the school year slightly later in August.
Version 2 of the calendars has a full week February (mid-winter) break, and starts the school year slightly earlier in August. 
The versions also distribute teacher work days differently.
Both calendars maintain a full week for Thanksgiving break, two weeks for the Christmas and New Year’s break, and a full week for Spring break in the first full week of April. Both calendars also end the school year for students before Memorial Day.
