The Columbia County school board on Tuesday approved calendars for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years.
School board members already gave initial approval for the calendars March 13 following a lengthy discussion regarding the start dates. Both calendars list the first day of school as Aug. 7.
In 2013, Aug. 7 is a Wednesday. It falls on a Thursday in 2014.
Unhappy with mid-week start dates, school trustee Mike Sleeper pushed for Monday starts dates – Aug. 12 in 2013 and Aug. 11 in 2014 – at the previous meeting.
