A reminder that school administrative units and private schools approved for tuition purposes are now required to establish regional school calendars, in coordination with their local secondary Career and Technical Education (CTE) school. Maine DOE has previously reminded districts that calendars must be submitted to us no later than June 1, 2013 so that we can ensure they are approved by the July 1, 2013 deadline. However, because June 1 falls on a Saturday, the Department will accept your submissions for review through Monday, June 3.
