Parent Roadmap: Supporting your child in English Language Arts Lake County Schools is working to improve teaching and learning to ensure all children graduate high school with the skills needed to be successful. The following documents provide helpful hints on how you as a parent can partner with our schools in ensuring our students graduate college and career ready.
The Lake County School Board unanimously approved the student calendar for the 2014-2015 school year at its regularly scheduled meeting. The District is required to develop and implement a 180-day student calendar for each school year. In order to comply with the requirement, a committee composed of employee representatives, parents, citizens and administrators developed two options for the 2014-2015 school year. The options were posted on the School District’s website (www.lakeschools.com). Parents, students, employees and community members were encouraged to review the two calendar options online before selecting their preferred option. The results of the survey revealed a majority of the online pollsters preferred option one, which the School Board ultimately approved. The approved 2014-2015 school year calendar includes these notable dates: Aug. 18 – First day of school; Sept. 1 – Labor Day; Sept. 26 – No school for students (Teacher Professional Development Day); Oct. 20 – No school for students (end of first grading period); Nov. 11 – Veterans Day; Nov. 24-28 – Thanksgiving holiday (Monday-Tuesday storm/makeup days); Dec. 22-31, Jan. 1-2 – Winter break (Monday storm/makeup day); Jan. 16 – No school for students (end of second grading period); Jan. 19 – MLK Jr. Birthday; Feb. 16 – Presidents’ Day; March 27 – No school for students (end of third grading period); March 30-31, April 1-3 – Spring break; May 25 – Memorial Day; June 4 – Last day of school
