The Board of Education is seeking feedback from Westerville City School District families as it pertains to the 2018-2019 calendar.  A link to the calendar and feedback form is available online at

This proposed calendar has been developed based upon community and staff feedback on previous calendars.  The Board is anticipated to hold its second reading on this calendar during its May 22, 2017, regular meeting to meet the state requirement of a 30-day window between a public hearing of the proposed calendar and its final approval.

Key points to the proposed calendar include:

  • The calendar again begins the school year during the third week of August.
  • The second semester ends the week prior to the Memorial Day holiday.
  • The calendar has spring break scheduled during the last week of March.
  • This calendar exceeds the minimum number of school year hours required by the state and includes time to address calamity days or other unforeseen events that may impact the days that school is in session.
