Two school boards aligning coming calendars 2017-18 school year to start Aug. 30


The school boards from the Grand Coulee Dam District and Nespelem District met recently and focused their discussions on the calendars for the next two school years.

As a new approach to setting the school calendar, Grand Coulee Dam District Superintendent Paul Turner opted to present a two-year calendar plan to the respective boards.

Turner reviewed it with his own board in February and board Chair Joette Barry requested a review with Nespelem before passage.

The two boards reviewed the calendars and decided to try to match the fall school opening dates, and to try to match as many of the dates as they could.

The two districts have agreed to open school this fall on August 30, and are working on an agreement to open the 2018-19 school year on Aug. 29.

The calendars were reviewed and passed by the Grand Coulee Dam School District on March 27.
