Washoe County School Calendar 2013 -2014
Monday, August 12, 2013 is the first day of school for Washoe County School students. The Washoe County School Board of Trustees voted earlier in the year to put all schools on a “balanced” school calendar to help ease over crowding that some of the schools face. The board agreed the new school calendar would be a test to see if it would work for parents, students and the school district.
The calendar’s major new features include an earlier start date in August, shorter summer vacation, extended winter and spring breaks and the addition of a week-long fall break in October. The Washoe County School District operates public K through 12th grade schools in Washoe County, Nevada. WCSD is also responsible for a number of charter schools and other special purpose schools. Schools in the district are located in the Reno / Sparks metro area, Incline Village at Lake Tahoe, and the rural communities of Gerlach, Empire, and Wadsworth.
