Bay District School Board members have a calendar ready, for the 2009 and 2010 school year.
School officials posted two potential calendars on the district webpage last month, asking Bay County Residents to vote for their preference.
An overwhelming majority -- 83-percent --chose the option giving students the whole week of Thanksgiving off.
More than 2,000 people voted.
Educators also had an opportunity to give their opinion.
Students will start school on Monday August 24th in 2009.
The schedule meets a new Florida statute prohibiting classes from starting earlier than 2 weeks before Labor Day.
