DCSD approves two years of academic calendars

The Darlington County Board of Education approved the district’s academic calendars for 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 at its Nov. 8 board meeting. The two calendars come after much discussion and feedback from parents, students, teachers, and other district employees. In 2022-2023 school year, the first day of school for students will be Aug. 1, 2022. The first day for teachers will be July 25, 2022. Both calendars will allow the district to complete the first semester before Christmas/Winter Break and both will end before the first of June. In response to the feedback, the district was able to incorporate week-long breaks in October and February for teachers and students. In all, students will be in school 180 days as mandated by S.C. law and teachers will work for 190 days.
