District Revises Academic Calendar

Due to the unusual weather our region has seen this winter, the Springfield Board of Education discussed two options for recovering instructional time at a work session on Monday, Feb. 27. After the work session, the board voted at a special board meeting to extend the school year by four school days.

The last day of school for the 2016-2017 school year will be on Wednesday, June 21, for students.

Thursday, June 22, will be a grading day for staff. Any subsequent missed days would be added on a one-for-one basis to both student contact and staff work days from those dates forward.

 You can download a copy of the new calendar here:  2016-17_Community_Calendar_Final_Amended_OptA
