The Dalton Public Schools Board of Education has voted to approve the proposed academic calendars, paving the way for the adoption of academic calendars for the next two academic years.

During the meeting held on Monday, February 12, the Dalton Public Schools Board of Education deliberated on three proposed academic calendars for the 2024-25 and 2025-26 academic years. Both approved calendars, which closely resemble the current academic calendar, comprise 190 student learning days and 10 teacher professional learning days.

Additionally, the 2024-25 calendar includes 4 virtual learning days, allowing educators the opportunity to engage in professional learning related to the new Dalton Public Schools literacy program while providing digital support to their students.
