At its regularly scheduled board meeting on Monday, January 11, 2021, the SDOC Board of Trustees approved calendars for the 2021-2022 school year.  Middle and high school students will begin on Wednesday, August 11, 2021, and end on Tuesday, May 24, 2022.  Elementary school students will begin on Monday, August 16, 2021, and end on Friday, May 27, 2022.  All inservice days and holiday breaks are identical between the two calendars.

Associate Superintendent Mr. Steve Hanvey said, "State law says schools cannot begin before the third Monday of August.  Last year, we were granted permission to start middle schools and high schools prior to the third Monday to allow us to complete the first semester before Christmas break.  This is very beneficial to our high school students.  While we would love for all our schools to be able to begin at the same time, there are not the same compelling reasons for elementary schools.  We are hopeful that the state legislature will give districts more flexibility with the calendar start date in the future."
