The 2014-15 calendar has two changes when compared to previous school calendars. First, students will start school five days earlier. The start date was moved from August 20th to August 14th so that Solon Graduation could continue to be held one week before Memorial Day. The earlier start date will also allow first semester to be completed prior to Christmas Break.
The second change in the school calendar is the frequency of professional development. In past years, the district operated professional development on an every-other-week basis, with a 1:00 dismissal time. The 2014-15 calendar will have weekly professional development, however the dismissal time has been moved to 1:45 to reduce the impact on instructional minutes.
