At the January 8, 2024 Manchester City School Board Meeting, the Board unanimously approved the 2025-2026 school calendar.
Parents with children in the Manchester City School system, that also have children in the Coffee County School system will note that the calendars are identical.
Dr. Joey Vaughn, Director of Manchester City Schools had this to say:
Dr. Vaughn also stated that with the July start of school in the calendar, permission would need to be granted from the state of Tennessee. See Tennessee Code Annotated 49-6-3004(f), Local Education Agencies (LEA) shall commence the school year no earlier than Aug. 1 unless the LEA’s board of education votes to establish year-round or alternative calendar for all or any of the schools.
