Thousands of Fulton County families soon will be able to plan ahead once the school board finalizes the academic calendars for the years 2023-2024 and 2024-2025.

The board on Tuesday voted 6-0 to tentatively approve the schedules, which include a week off at Thanksgiving, a couple of weeks off for the winter holidays and a weeklong spring break.

The 2023-2024 draft calendar includes 175 instructional days, while the following year includes 177. The board is set to give final approval to the schedules next week when they appear on a consent agenda, a list of routine or procedural items that are approved in a batch with one vote.
