Daniel C. Oakes High School runs on a year-round schedule, which means it is on a different schedule than the majority of schools within Douglas County School District. We run a 9-week quarter, followed by a 3-week break before the next 9-week quarter begins.

  1. The first quarter begins in July, and ends in September.
  2. Second quarter begins late September/early October, and ends in December.
  3. Third quarter begins in January, and ends in March.
  4. Fourth quarter begins in late March/early April, and ends in late May.

 Students and staff have the full month of June off for summer vacation.
