At their regularly scheduled meeting last evening, the Lakeland Board of Education approved the district calendar for the 2017-2018 school year. The Board kept with their philosophy of building lots of make-up days into the calendar, to keep Commencement a firm date, and included a make-up day order, for the first ten possible make-ups
This year, the start date for students is a week later than it's been in recent years, to give more time for the massive renovation project happening this summer, and therefore Commencement is a week later.
So barring any construction delays or excessive cancellations...
- The first student-day is August 31st
- The last student day is June 8th
- Class of 2018 Commencement is June 15th
