Those with school-age children wanting to get a jump planning vacations for the next two years can forge ahead with those plans. The Fayette County Board of Education last week approved the school calendar for 2014 with school starting Aug. 7, 2014, and ending May 22, 2015.
School system officials had more than 1,000 people respond to the two calendars previously posted on the website. Superintendent Jody Barrow said the best features of both proposed calendars were combined.
Effective for the next two school years, the 180-day calendar has school beginning on Thursday, Aug. 7.
