During its May 9 meeting, the Garden City Public Schools Board of Education approved an updated 2022-2023 school calendar.
A morning session of school will be held for elementary, fifth, seventh, ninth and tenth grades and students new to the district on Wednesday, August 17. The first day of school for all students is Thursday, August 18.
The calendar was approved as part of the negotiated agreement. The agreement will add 20 minutes to the daily student contact time and the number of contract days will be reduced by six days for the school year (5 student contact and 1 Professional Development day).
Student contact changes from 400 minutes to 420 minutes/day, which reduces total days from 174.5 to 169.5 for the district.
