OXFORD– The School Board of Directors for the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Community School District approved the 2018-19 academic year calendar Wednesday, Jan. 17, during its regular monthly meeting at Clear Creek Elementary, in Oxford.

The calendar includes 180 classroom days with a total of 1,077 hours of instruction. Teachers have eight additional professional development days for a 188-day schedule.
The district’s “Winter Break” for Christmas and New Year’s is set for Monday, Dec. 24, through Wednesday, Jan. 2, with classes resuming on Thursday, Jan. 3. Spring Break is set for Monday, March 11, through Friday, March 15, with two additional three-day weekends; one in March and one in April.
Graduation is set for Friday, May 24, at the start of the three-day weekend for Memorial Day.
The board approved the calendar on a unanimous voice vote.
