The 2014-2015 school year calendar was approved for the Laurel County school district at Monday’s Laurel County Board of Education meeting.

According to Superintendent Doug Bennett, the calendar is mostly the same save that students will have President’s Day off next calendar year. President’s Day will be a flexible professional development day, meaning that it can be turned into an instructional day if necessary.

“We wanted students to recognize the significance of (President’s Day),” Bennett said of the change.

In other board news:

–North Laurel Middle School’s concert band performed at the Kentucky Music Educators Association convention in Louisville as a featured performer.

“That is a great honor,” Bennett said.

–Closeout documents for the McDaniel Center Re-Roofing Project were approved, meaning the project is officially finished.
