Pinellas 2017-18 school, teacher calendar is out



The 2017-18 Pinellas County school year will (tentatively) start Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017 and end Thursday, May 24, 2018.

The draft calendar was posted Monday morning and will be discussed at a recently planned 3:30 p.m. workshop Tuesday, just before the School Board's regularly scheduled 5 p.m. board meeting at the district's headquarters in Largo.

The instructional calendar includes a student calendar, an approved list of special observance days, and a teacher and staff calendar. The draft calendar mirrors the 2016-17 calendar, with staff reporting to work Aug. 1 and beginning their summer May 25. Hurricane days are October 16, 2017 and November 20, 2017. 

School Board members plan to discuss the calendar at Tuesday's workshop. It is unclear when the draft calendar will go before the board for official approval as it is not listed in Tuesday's meeting agenda.

Pinellas' draft calendar is in line with Hillsborough's. That calendar will go before the Hillsborough School Board for approval in the Spring.
