Good news, teachers: You’re now likely going to have the day before Thanksgiving off of work. But you’ll also have to report for duty a day earlier in the fall.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is planning to ask the school board at next week’s meeting to approve a few changes to the academic calendar for the 2015-16 school year. It took me a few moments to figure out the changes, but here they are in a nutshell:
▪ Wednesday, Nov. 25 (the day before Thanksgiving) goes from a teacher workday to a holiday.
▪ Monday, Aug. 17 becomes a teacher workday. It previously hadn’t been on the calendar. That Tuesday through Friday has been workdays before the start of school Monday, Aug. 24.
