The Derry Area School Board approved the school calendar for the 2013-14 academic year at Thursday evening's regular meeting.

Students will start the school year Aug. 28 with the last day of instruction set for June 4.

The last instructional day of the calendar year will be Dec. 20. Teachers will have an in-service day Dec. 23, which could alternatively be used as the district's first snow makeup day. Classes will resume Jan. 6.

“I hope the students (in the audience) are all right with us adding 18 days to the school year,” board member Joseph Soltis joked.

The board voted to employ Kristina Planinsek as the district's “elementary online learning coordinator,” beginning today, at a prorated salary based on the number of days remaining in the school year and the number of K-7 students enrolled in the program.

The board also approved seven volunteer coaches for the spring sports season, three for baseball, three for track and one for boys' volleyball: former Derry standout Logan Patterson, who is now starring as an outside hitter for the St. Francis University men's volleyball team.
