The first day of school for the 2015-16 school year is set.
The calendar approved by the Roane County Board of Education last week has students starting the new school year on Aug. 10.
The board had been considering two calendar options for the 2015-16 school year.
The one referred to as the “balanced” calendar included a two-week break in the fall and a two-week break in the spring.
The board picked the traditional calendar, however, which includes the customary one-week break in the fall and a one-week break in the spring.
