CHARLESTON, W.Va. (Jeff Morris) -- Kanawha County students will start school on Aug. 11 next school year and have their final day on May 27 under a school year calendar approved by school board members.
The board approved the 2014-2015 school year calendar Wednesday evening.
A school spokeswoman said even though the last day of school is scheduled May 27 all days will have to be made up and that means students could be attending through June 30. School officials are hopeful, however, that the school system will not have another winter like this one or another water crisis that causes students to miss so many days, the spokeswoman said.
Below are dates for the school calendar:
