Need to know the important dates for Paulding County Schools' 2012-2013 school year? Dallas-Hiram Patch is here to help.
When does the school year start in Paulding County? If you answered with any form of “very soon,” you’d be correct.
Paulding County Schools’ 2012-2013 school year begins Wednesday. The school calendar was initially approved in February and amended in May, which brought it more in line with the calendar used in the 2011-2012 school year.
The 178-day calendar includes a weeklong fall break the last full week of September, a weeklong Thanksgiving break, and the first semester’s end on Thursday, Dec. 20.
Students will return to classes on Jan. 7, 2013.
The second semester includes a winter break Feb. 18-22, while spring break runs April 8-12. Students’ last day will be May 24, with the district’s five high schools holding graduations either on that day or Saturday, depending on how officials schedule them.
