On Monday, January 15, the Indianola School Board approved the 2018-2019 school calendar. Following a public hearing the Board voted to adopt a calendar based on a minimum of 1080 hours of instruction. They ultimately approved a calendar that has school beginning on August 23, 2018 and concluding on May 30, 2019.
Due to issues with the HVAC system at Irving Elementary School, requiring extensive renovations over the summer, the Board voted to suspend the Year Round Education (YRE) calendar for one year only. As a result, the Irving YRE program will operate on the same calendar as the district’s other five buildings. The YRE calendar will resume in 2019-2020.
