The Board will vote on the calendar options on Tuesday, November 5th.

In 2016, Governor Larry Hogan signed an executive order requiring that public schools in Maryland start classes after Labor Day in 2017.

The Maryland General Assembly overturned the order in March of this year, leaving it up to the local school board in each jurisdiction to decide when to begin school.
