The School Year Calendar mandates that school sessions begin for all students on Thursday, September 4, 2014 and includes a Midwinter Recess (Monday, February 16 through Friday, February 20, 2015). It reflects that on Tuesday, November 4, 2014, and Thursday, June 4, 2015, students in all five boroughs will not be in attendance, but schools in all five boroughs will be scheduled for a Chancellor’s Conference Day for staff development related to the implementation of high learning standards and assessments. The calendar must be adhered to without exception, unless notifications of subsequent changes are received pursuant to collective bargaining agreements or for other reasons, provided these other reasons are not inconsistent with collective bargaining or legal obligations.
