Gunnell explains 2016-17 HHCS calendar


Susan Gunnell - Superintendent, Huber Heights City Schools



At the February Huber Heights Board of Education meeting the Board adopted the calendar for the 2016 – 2017 school year. The calendar for 2016 – 2017 is very similar to the school year calendar for the 2015 – 2016 school year.

The first day for students is Wednesday, August 10, 2016 and the last school day for students is scheduled for Friday, May 19, 2017. The first quarter ends on October 12, the second quarter on December 20, the third quarter on March 24, and the last quarter of the 2016 – 2017 school year ends on May 19, 2017. Teacher work days (with no students in attendance) for grading and clerical responsibilities are scheduled for August 9, October 13, December 21, March 27, and May 22. Spring break dates are February 27, 2017 through March 3, 2017.

Teacher training is very important to our staff to ensure they are up-to-date on the latest teaching techniques, content standards, and educational requirements. There is also an increased focus on using individual student achievement data to target instructional practices. In order to assist our staff as they work to stay current with educational changes, there are several two-hour early release days for students as well as professional development days (without students in attendance) built into the 2016 – 2017 school calendar. Two-hour early release days are scheduled for August 26, September 30, December 2, January 20, and May 5. Teacher professional development and training dates include August 8, October 14, February 17, and April 14.

The complete calendar for the 2016 – 2017 school year can be found on our website, www.huberheightscityschools.org. As always, if you have questions about our schools, please contact me at the Administrative Offices (237-6300) or through e-mail at Susan.Gunnell@huberheightscityschools.org.
