The Milan School Board has given unanimous approval of the academic calendar for the 2020-21 school year. The new calendar features a start date of September 8th. Milan Superintendent Dr. Ben Yocom explains the reason for the late start.
While school will be starting later than usual, it won’t have much of an impact on the end date of the school year due to some other changes in the schedule format.
The late start will allow for completion of construction on the district’s new cafeteria and commons area. As a result, Yocom says this format won’t become the norm for Milan.
Prior to the board’s approval, multiple scheduling plans were presented to the school district staff. They also gave overwhelmingly approved the final academic calendar.
