School calendar adjusted for 2016 presidential primary

(May 28, 2015) After Governor Larry Hogan signed Senate Bill 204, which moved the Presidential Primary to the fourth Tuesday in April, the Worcester County Board of Education approved a modified 2015-2016 school calendar.
In addition to the Election Day change, the modified calendar represents adjustments to the first, second and third marking periods.
“Because the school calendar had to be altered to comply with the regulation it affected the number of days in session for the months of November and April,” said Chief Academic Officer Dr. John Quinn. “In turn, it gave us the opportunity to balance the length of each marking period. This will benefit our students and staff and will not impact holiday vacations or the projected last day of school.”
The modified calendar remains at 183 school days and includes three inclement weather days which have been added to the end of the calendar.
If these inclement weather days are not used, they will be subtracted from the end of the calendar. The last day of school is projected to be Friday, June 17, 2016.
