Board Discusses WEA School Calendar Recommendation for 2017-18

At the December 12 Waukee Board of Education meeting Andy Pals, calendar committee chair, presented the 2017-18 Waukee Education Association (WEA) school calendar recommendations. Pals walked board members through the proposal and answered questions.

The calendar proposed the following key dates:

  • The first day of school, Wednesday, August 23, 2017. This is the earliest start date allowed by state law.
  • Winter break would be from Dec. 22, 2017, through Jan 2, 2018. Classes would resume on Jan. 3, 2018.
  • Spring break would be from March 12-16. Classes would resume on March 19, 2018. 
  • The last day of school would be May 30, 2018.

The calendar recommendation was a discussion item, no action was taken at the meeting. The 2017-18 school year calendar, along with the appropriate public hearings, will be approval items on the Jan. 9, 2017, Board of Education agenda.
