Allentown School District Approves 2023-2024 School Year Calendar

Allentown School District Approves 2023-2024 School Year Calendar
Posted on 02/24/2023
Last night, at the February 23, 2023, Regular Board Meeting the Allentown School District approved the final 2023-2024 School Year calendar.

Key takeaways: 
Monday, August 21, 2023 - Teacher Start Date
Monday, August 28, 2023 - First Day of School for Students 
Friday, September 1 - Monday, September 4, 2023 - District Closed for Labor Day Holiday
Tuesday, January 2, 2024 - District Closed in observance of New Year's Day 
Friday, June 7, 2024 - Tentative Last Day for Students Pending Emergency Closures
Monday, June 10, 2024 - Tentative Last Day for Teachers Pending Emergency Closures

This calendar reflects all federal and locally observed holidays, along with previous Board approval to keep the start date for students before the Labor Day holiday, which aligns ASD with all other Lehigh Valley school districts. Start and end dates for all other bargaining units will be adjusted to reflect their contractual working days. Allentown School District’s approved Flexible Instruction Days (FIDs) will support our effort to maintain scheduled end dates. 

The August start date will allow Allentown School District students to begin on time at LCTI providing them with an extra week of instruction. Commencement for the Class of 2024 will be scheduled and announced in the fall. Additionally, High School Keystone testing will reflect a modified schedule start for non-test takers. 

The district age requirement for Kindergarten will remain September 1. Parents/Guardians of children who will turn 5 on or before September 1, 2023, should register for Kindergarten as early as possible in order to start school on time.
