FWCS Changing Calendar Beginning With 2015-2016 School Year

June 4, 2014 Updated Jun 4, 2014 at 2:43 PM EST

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- FWCS will be adopting a new calendar for the 2015-2016 school year.

The first day of school will be scheduled to begin on August 11th, which will start school a week earlier than the current schedule. The modification is a reaction to this past winter's extreme weather that wrecked havoc on FWCS's schedule.

The new calendar will also add a third reserve make-up day for most years. That day is scheduled to be March 11th.
