The proposed 2017-2018 school calendar was unanimously approved by the board of education at the February 9 board meeting.
The calendar calls for the first day for students to be August 3 and the final day of the school year for students to be May 10.
The earlier start date allows more summer construction time during the summer of 2018 for the new Murray High school building.
