You may think it's too early to think about it, but the 2017-18 school year will be here before you know it.

The calendar year for Bismarck students will begin on August 24, 2017 and finish on May 24, 2018.

The school board approved the calendar school year after a reaction from over 1,900 people to a survey that was issued. Based on the results of those surveys, more than 3/4 of people responding said they'd like the school year to end before Memorial Day.
