USC considers 2013-14 school calendar
Upper St. Clair School Superintendent Patrick O’Toole is accepting feedback during the next month regarding the proposed 2013-2014 school calendar.
The draft has school starting on Aug. 26. The last day of school is listed as June 12, pending snow make-up days.
April 14-18 is listed as spring recess.
The currently proposed fall open house dates at the schools are: Sept. 19 at Boyce Middle School, Sept. 12 at the elementary schools, Oct. 9 at the high school and Oct. 3 at Fort Couch Middle School.
There are two scheduled half days on the calendar, on Oct. 11 and March 7. The students would be dismissed early on those days and the remainder of the day would be used for professional development for the teaching staff.
Seven teacher in-service days are listed between Aug. 26 and June 12, during which there is no school for students. They are: Oct. 28, Oct. 29, Nov. 5, Jan. 20, Feb. 14, March 31 and April 21.
The school board is expected to consider proposed revisions to the draft calendar at the board’s committee of the whole meeting on March 11, and is expected to adopt a final version at its meeting on March 18.
