SHAB Advisory Meeting

The next SHAB meeting will be held on Monday, January 28, 2019 at 3:30 PM in the Hamilton-Holmes Middle school library.

2019-20 School Calendar Draft

KWCPS staff has developed the draft 2019-2020 school calendar.  Please note that staff is proposing that the start of the school year be PRIOR to Labor Day.  King William County has experienced an increased number of weather related events over recent years, which has resulted in a substantial loss of instructional time.  Starting school prior to Labor Day will afford students the additional instructional time needed to support continued academic success.  

The King William County School Board is seeking public input on this proposal at the Feb. 19th school board meeting.  The public input portion of the meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the HHMS atrium.
