Frederick County students to start 2014-2015 a week earlier

Daily staff report

Students in Frederick County Public Schools will start their first day on Aug. 18 and finish the year on June 5, 2015, depending on the number of instructional days missed due to inclement weather.

The dates are part of the 2014-2015 school calendar that the Frederick County School Board adopted at its meeting Tuesday night.

The calendar for the 2014-2015 school year starts and ends one week earlier than the current year’s schedule, which began on Aug. 26 and will end June 13, according to the school division’s website.

The new calendar designates spring break as April 3-7, 2015, and Sherando High School’s graduation date will be May 29, 2015.
