School board adopts 2011-12 calendar

At its October 21 meeting, the Fulton County School Board adopted the calendar for the 2011-12 school year.

Similar to the current year's calendar, the one below follows a 177-day model that shortens the school year by three days but adds 10 minutes of instructional time to each day. As a result, the district is expected to save approximately $1 million in operating costs.
