BACK TO SCHOOL!
(Bradenton, FL. - August 20, 2012) School buses were rolling early on the morning of Monday, August 20, 2012 as the first day of school dawned in Manatee County. More than 45,000 students were expected in Manatee District schools for the start of the 2012-2013 school year.
Start and End Times for Manatee District Schools are different this year than recent years.
During the last six years, Manatee District Schools used a Modified Instructional Week with longer school days on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday - and a shorter school day on Wednesdays. This school year, Manatee District Schools will return to a traditional schedule with the same start and end times Monday through Friday.
The start and end times are as follows:
