School will begin Aug. 10 in the 2017-18 school year

After considering input from students, families, and employees, the Board of Education has adopted a new school year calendar for the 2017-18 school year.


Under the new calendar (click here for a full copy), the school year will begin on Thursday, Aug. 10 for students and end Thursday, May 31, 2018. Teachers will begin the school year with two workdays beginning Tuesday, Aug. 8 and end with a workday on Friday, June 1, 2018.


There will be no school on Oct. 9; Winter Break will run Thursday, Dec. 21-Jan. 5, 2018; and the District will maintain a travel day at the end of Spring Break (Monday, April 2, 2018).


The District took into consideration significant feedback from teachers, staff, families, and students when recommending the Aug. 10 start date to the Board, including feedback from students and teachers who preferred a Thursday start.


In addition to public comment at District meetings, there were more than 4,800 responses to an online survey from families, staff, and students. The results can be viewed at this link.


Folsom Cordova will continue to evaluate the impact of the school year calendar on staff, students, and families and make revisions to best meet the needs of our community.

If you have any questions, please contact the District at (916) 294-9000 or
