With the 2013-2014 school year only a few weeks away, many Philadelphia-area OST providers still have questions about the School District’s academic calendar. To the right you will find the calendar. Additionally, you can download the calendar here.
School begins on September 9th for students, 1st-12th grade, and on September 16th for kindergarten students. Holiday closures are listed on the calendar, as well as other full-day and half-day school closures. Report card conferences are also noted.
For Philadelphia afterschool providers in the DHS OST Network, programs are expected to operate a minimum of 175 days during the school year. Use this calendar as a reference as you are planning your operating days (including half and full days, when schools are closed).
Additionally, as per the FY2014 Scope of Work, programs will operate between September 16th, 2013, and June 20th, 2014.
