VCS Adopts Revised 2017-18 School Calendar

The Villages Charter School has adopted a modified 2017-18 school calendar. This move was necessary as a result of the three days missed due to Hurricane Irma.

We are swapping three teacher work days / staff development days for student contact days. All of these days were pre-designated as make up days on our adopted calendar and ensures we have the full 180 days of student learning.

  • October 16, 2017 was a “Teacher Professional Day” and was held as a regular school day.
  • January 8, 2018 was a “Teacher Professional Day” and was held as a regular school day as well as the first day of the second semester.
  • April 27, 2018 was a “Teacher Professional Day” and will now be a regular school day.

See the 2017-18 revised VCS School Calendar below.
