Spotsylvania schools will start after Labor Day for 2013-14
The Spotsylvania School Board voted Monday to begin the 2013-14 school year the day after Labor Day. That will align the school division with most school districts in the Fredericksburg region.
The board had three options to choose from and selected Option A after a lengthy discussion and a total of three motions. That is the option recommended by the division’s Calendar Committee. Both of the other options would have started the school year in August.
The 2013-14 school-year calendar includes the following:
START: Sept. 3
WINTER BREAK: Two weeks
SPRING BREAK: One week
END: June 13, 2014
GRADUATION: June 6 and 7, 2014
