HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Scheduling just got a little easier for local teachers.

Madison County Schools and Huntsville City Schools have aligned their schedules for the 2020-2021 school year.

The two districts fall break (Oct 5-9), Thanksgiving Break (Nov 23-27), winter break (Dec 21-Jan 4) and spring break (March 29-April 2) all align.

The May graduation dates are off by a day.

Madison County Superintendent Matt Massey said the move was years in the making, and will definitely benefit his teachers and their community.

“It was really a hardship on our families, and we have a lot of employee whose kids go to Huntsville and vice versa,” he said.

Madison County Schools Computer Operations Manager Aurora Yancey said her family will directly benefit from the move.

Her two children go to Huntsville City Schools, which created regular conflicts with her work.

“I’ll have it where my kids get out early or they’re dismissed on certain days. We have to work on those days, so I’m having to accommodate for both schedules at the same time, so it’s very frustrating,” she said.

Massey said superintendents from all three Madison County school districts (including Madison City Schools) were in talks about aligning schedules.

The Madison City Schools 2020-2021 schedule is not yet published on its website.
