On May 7, District 65 School Board President Katie Bailey announced that a meeting of the Joint District 65/District 202 Committee was held on May 1 to discuss the calendars of the School Districts, in particular the coordination of the start dates for school.

For 2013-14 and 2014-15, each School District will start school on the last Monday of August, Ms. Bailey said.

The Districts will continue to work together to coordinate future calendars, and discuss the feasibility of starting school on the fourth Monday when there are five Mondays in August.
