The Evanston/Skokie District 65 School Board at its Monday night meeting approved a change to the 2017-18 calendar that keeps Monday, June 4, as the last day of school.

In an updated calendar proposed at last week’s board meeting, the administration recommended using the make-up snow day on Tuesday, June 5, for additional staff training.

A change to the 2018-19 calendar also approved by the board adds two more staff professional development days at the beginning of the year to be used for completion of Beyond Diversity training or workshops on diversity.

With the approved changes, the 2018-19 school year will be shortened from 176 to 174 days, as permitted by a waiver issued by the Illinois State Board of Education, with the first day of school for students on Monday, Aug. 27, and the last day on Monday, June 3, 2019.
