The calendar of events for the 2013-14 school year was approved by the Chillicothe R-2 Board of Education of Tuesday night (Dec. 18).

Just prior to Tuesday night's regular board meeting, a brief public hearing was held at the District Headquarters, for the purpose of discussing the suggested first day of school for next year (Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2013). This hearing brought about no comments from the crowd, but was explained to be a necessary step in approving the calendar of events (per law), as the 21st is more than 10 days from Labor Day 2013 (Monday, Sept. 2, 2013).
