Release Date: 5/26/2011 9:15:16 AM

At the administrative Board meeting on Wednesday, May 25, 2011, the Board of Education of Carroll County approved revisions to the 2011-2012 school calendar. This change was required due to legislation that moved the 2012 Primary Election Day from the second Tuesday in February to the first Tuesday in April.
The Primary Election Day has changed from Tuesday, February 14, to Tuesday, April 3, 2012. The revised calendar makes this change and also adjusts the Spring Break and state-mandated Easter holiday to minimize disruption to the school schedule. 
The Board approved the following revisions to the 2011-2012 school calendar: 
  • Tuesday, February 14, will be a regular school day.
  • The Spring Holiday will be adjusted to April 2-9, 2012.
  • Schools will be closed for students on April 10, 2012 – Teachers work on end of marking period items and a professional development day.
  • Students will return from the Spring Holiday on April 11, 2012.
  • Four emergency closing days will be built into the calendar instead of five.
  • The last day of school will remain the same.
