District seeks calendar input for 2024-2025 and 2025-2026 school years

Tuesday, January 30, 2024

BEAUFORT – Beaufort County School District (BCSD) is soliciting public input on upcoming academic calendar options for both the 2024-2025 and 2025-2026 school years.


“We recognize that the district calendar impacts many key stakeholders, to include educators, students, families, businesses, and community members,” said Superintendent Dr. Frank Rodriguez. “This year, we plan on releasing two years’ worth of calendars, instead of just one, so families, educators, and the community can plan ahead accordingly.”


The 2024-2025 and 2025-2026 academic calendar options being put forth for public input have been developed based on initial holistic input that the Instructional Services Department received from educators and SIC chairs (which includes parents). As the next step in the process, all Beaufort County citizens are welcome to submit their feedback via the district’s website: by Sunday, February 4, 2024.  

“After receiving essential initial feedback that contributed to the current options put forth for public review that align with SC State law, we look forward to receiving input from all of our stakeholders before a final recommendation is made to the Board of Education in February,” said Chief Instructional Officer, Dr. Mary Stratos. “Many educators we spoke with expressed the need for an even 90/90 split for each semester before and after the winter break that would allow for an equal amount of instructional days for our classes, especially at the high school level, which is a key reason for the modified options put forth this year.”

Although a full year-round option is not under consideration, modified options that still include several weeks of summer break are, as well as a more traditional option for 2024-2025 to serve as a transition period.
