Busiest stretch for first day of classes is Aug. 16-18

It is August, and the start of the 2022-23 school year is upon many communities.

Most of the region’s public school districts, including Dayton Public, Kettering, Beavercreek and Centerville, go back to school during the third week of August.

Districts including Mad River, Fairborn and Valley View do not go back to school until after Labor Day. Fairborn, in the midst of school construction projects, recently pushed back its start date from an initial start of Aug. 18 for most grades to Sept. 6 for all grades.

Many districts have separate start dates for preschool and kindergarten students versus grades 1 through 12. In those cases, preschool and kindergarten kids often start a few days later than the rest of the school. Check your individual school district’s calendar for details.
