2020/2021 Academic Calendar is Approved
Posted on 01/17/2020

We are pleased to present our academic calendar for the 2020-2021 school year. The calendar was approved during the January Board of Education Meeting.

Thank you to our Calendar Committee comprised of teachers, students, staff, and parents who worked together on this important process.

Our first day back for students is August 17, 2020.

View and download our current BCS calendars.

As a reminder, all schools in North Carolina must adhere to the state's calendar laws when selecting the first and last days of the school year. G.S. 115C-84.2 states that local boards of education shall determine the dates of opening and closing public schools. Except for year-round schools, the opening date for students shall be no earlier than the Monday closest to August 26, and the closing date for students shall be no later than the Friday closest to June 11 except when a weather waiver is granted.

As BCS is operating under a weather waiver for the 2020/21 school year, our student start date is consistent with state law.
