For thousands of D.C. students, school starts early with new, year-round schedule


It was the first week in August, and teachers at Kelly Miller Middle School were already scrambling to decorate classrooms and hone lesson plans.

The school’s more than 500 students will arrive Monday at the Washington Northeast campus for the first day of school as summer continues for most others in the Washington area. They will be in class weeks earlier than in years past.

Kelly Miller is one of 10 D.C. public schools that will embark on a new, year-round academic calendar starting Monday. Their academic year will have 20 more days than other schools in the system, with shorter and more frequent breaks during a school year that runs 200 days through all 12 months. One additional elementary school began the extended schedule during the 2015-2016 school year.
