QUITMAN -- In terms of the calendar, the Brooks County School System's 2005-06 academic year mirrors its present one.
Recently, the Brooks County Board of Education adopted the annual calendar. It features a start date of Friday, Aug. 5, and ending date of Friday, May 19, 2006.
Members of the Brooks County Board of Education continued its two-day fall break trend in October. However, it was changed from a Thursday and Friday to a Monday and Tuesday due to conflicts with athletic schedules, said Lydia Hubert, school-community relations specialist.
These breaks are in addition to the traditional and regularly scheduled Labor Day, Thanksgiving, winter and spring holidays.
Graduation is scheduled for Saturday, May 20, 2006.
