No major changes from current year

Academic calendar

The West Linn-Wilsonville School Board voted unanimously Monday to approve the proposed calendars for the 2013-14 academic year.

The calendar bears many similarities to past versions, with school officially beginning on Sept. 3 — the Tuesday immediately following Labor Day — and ending on June 13 barring any days lost due to snow closure. Winter break will run from Dec. 20 to Jan. 6, and spring break is set to fall during the week of March 24.

“They are in alignment with past calendars,” said Kathe Monroe, director of human resources at the district who formally presented the calendar to the board.

The calendar also features three built-in snow makeup days, should they be necessary, on June 16, 17 and 18.

After approving the calendar, the board praised Monroe and her colleagues for a job that often goes unnoticed.

“It seems like such a trivial thing,” Board Chairman Keith Steele said. “But it really is not.”
