Fayette has a new school calendar in place for the 2011-12 school year. Board of education members were presented with three choices at their meeting last week and voted on a final choice.
The calendar calls for 180 days in the classroom, starting Aug. 24 and wrapping up May 25, 2012.
School will not be in session Sept. 6, the day after Labor Day, during fair week. The Christmas break is scheduled from Dec. 23 to Jan. 2 and a spring break is set for April 6-9.
Teachers begin work Aug. 23 and the final day is May 29.
