Newton-Conover City Schools has a proud tradition of providing quality educational services tailored to our diverse student population's specific learning and emotional needs. 

At the N-CCS Board of Education Meeting held on Monday, February 5, 2024, the Board approved the school calendar for the 2024-25 school year (see 24-25 School Calendar). 

Calendar features for the 2024-2025 school year include:

  • 165 days of instruction (to meet the state mandate of 1025 instructional hours)

  • 78 student days in the fall semester; 87 student days in the spring semester

  • The student start date is August 26, 2024 (per the North Carolina Calendar Law, it has to be on the Monday closest to August 26)

  • The last day of school for students is Thursday, May 22, 2023

  • There are 2 half days on the 24-25 calendar: Friday, December 20, 2024 & Thursday, May 22, 2025

  • Up to 5 remote learning days may be used in the event of inclement weather (ongoing legislation pending)

With these considerations, our board adopted the above-linked calendar. N-CCS works to meet the requirements of the 1,025 hours, which makes our school calendar conducive to high school first-semester exams before Christmas Break. Also, this calendar allows students' last day of the school year to occur before Memorial Day weekend. 

The Board of Education reserves the right to revise this calendar based on legislative changes and the changing needs of the school district. If this occurs, all district and community stakeholders will be informed accordingly.
