Calendars for school years 2019-20 and 2020-21 adopted

The Coweta County Board of Education adopted a new cycle of academic calendars for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years.


2019-20 School Year Calendar
2020-21 School Year Calendar


The school calendars were adopted at the school board’s December 11 regular meeting.

The calendars maintain 180 days of student instruction, divided into two 90-day semesters. The first semester concludes before the start of holidays in December to allow for high school course completion and final exams prior to the Christmas and New Year's break.

The calendars also include:

A Labor Day holiday


A 1-day October holiday in 2019/20, and a 1-day November holiday in 2020/21 coinciding with that year’s Presidential Election


A full-week Thanksgiving break

Two weeks for the Christmas and New Year’s break

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.


A full-week mid-Winter break in February

A full-week Spring break in April

School-year end before Memorial Day

Two Teacher Work Days have been moved to March, to serve as possible inclement weather days in case of school closures that require student make-ups.  They would be used as teacher workdays/student holidays otherwise.  These replace the inclement weather make-up days previously scheduled during the February break.

The calendar for the current school year – which ends on Friday, May 24, 2019 – can be found here.
