School Calendar

NCLB' In order to assist districts in their school-year planning, the Oregon Department of Education historically produced an annual school calendar listing holidays, inservice days, school weeks, and relevant statutes and rules. However, since all of this information is now available elsewhere online, ODE no longer produces this document.

Helpful Resources for Planning Your Calendar

Spring Break: Spring Break in Oregon school districts has historically aligned with State Universities' academic calendars. However, school districts do have the freedom to select an alternate spring break if they so choose.

Statewide Inservice: Oregon’s statewide inservice is always held the second Friday in October.

Legal Holidays: The following are legal holidays in Oregon: Each Sunday, New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King, Jr’s Birthday, President’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. If a holiday (other than Sunday) occurs on a Sunday, the following Monday will be a legal holiday. If a holiday occurs on a Saturday, the preceding Friday will be a legal holiday.

Statutes and Rules: See page 2 of the 2014-15 calendar PDF for further details on relevant statutes and rules.
