Pending Calendar Legislation
The North Carolina General Assembly is currently considering a bill (HB 207) that would allow an earlier start date for school systems that miss several days each year due to inclement weather. If adopted, the bill would allow Watauga County Schools, and other western North Carolina districts, to begin classes up to three weeks earlier than previous years. Below are two examples of possible calendars that WCS could adopt should the bill be made into law.
The calendars linked below have not been adopted by the Watauga County Board of Education. They are intended to demonstate what the WCS 2019-20 calendar could look like if calendar flexibility laws are passed by the General Assembly.
