Board Approves Non-Traditional Academic Calendars

Greensboro, N.C. – The Board of Education approved non-traditional academic calendars for 15 GCS schools that follow alternate school calendars. The approved calendars are linked below.

* 2019-20 Extended Year
* 2020-21 Extended Year
* 2019-20 Middle Colleges & Academies
* 2020-21 Middle Colleges & Academies
* 2019-20 Greensboro College Middle College
* 2019-20 Early College at Guilford
* 2019-20 Middle College at UNCG

The school board approved the calendars after a 30-day period of public comment, during which four comments were received.
Calendars were approved for the 2019-20 school year and, in some cases, for the 2020-21 school year. The 2020-21 collegiate calendars are not yet available at Greensboro College, Guilford College and UNCG, so calendars have not yet been developed for the early or middle colleges on those campuses.
