The 2013-2014 proposed school calendar has been developed in accordance with Rockcastle County Schools Board Policy 08.3, KRS 158.070 and 702.KAR 7:140 with input from administrative and teaching staff. The structure of the proposed 2013-2014 is the very same as the current 2012-2013 school calendar. The basic elements and requirements of this calendar include: Four (4) embedded Professional Development days throughout the school year, one (1) Opening and (1) Closing Day, holiday breaks are the same number of days as in 2012-13, the disclaimer involving the inclusion of President’s Day and/or Spring Break is exactly the same and again we are required to include 16 make-up days due to missing 16 days during the 2009-10 school year. This calendar meets the two criteria that will be used to grant approval by the Kentucky Department of Education, as it includes more than the required 170 days and more than the 1062 hours that is required. The one and only difference to be noted in the calendar is that the first day (full day) of school for student would be August 14 and the first day for teachers would be August 8. Teachers would have Professional Development days on August 8, 9,and 12 with Opening Day being August 13.
