Gordon County Schools Proposed Three-Year Academic School Calendar Drafts

The Gordon County Schools Board of Education has had the opportunity to review survey feedback and comments from stakeholders and employees of Gordon County Schools. The calendar drafts below represent responses from approximately 650 respondents.

Respondents shared their thoughts on holidays and school breaks, the start and end dates of each academic year, and other priorities they felt should be considered when designing the academic calendar for future school years. Based on the feedback received from both surveys, the below drafts were designed to reflect many of the suggestions received for the 2022-23, 2023-24, and 2024-25 academic school years.
