The problem only seem to occur in the particular month (March or November) when Daylight Saving Time either begins or ends in the United States.

True, and to be more specific, they only show incorrect when viewing the calendar in the "November" view. In other words, all events viewed from the "November" month view are off by a day ... even those that fall in December. Those same December events look fine from the "December" month view.

Somehow there must be an additional factor, which I'm quite sure is your time zone. I see no such problem, but I am in the Mountain Time Zone.

You don't see November issues at all?

I believe that's what I said (more than once). Every event scheduled for November 2014 appears exactly how I created it: on the correct date at the correct time; viewed in November, or at the tail end of October, or the beginning of December; in Week view or Month view.

What judson.wooters said is true from my non-Mountain time zone. The November month display has problems. The December items display differently, depending on whether you are looking at them in the monthly view of December (they are correct), or looking at them as additional days after the monthly view of November (they are incorrect -- The all day events are a day earlier, and the timed events are an hour or two earlier depending on the local time zone).

The developers seem to have been able to fix the other months.

The fix for this is being tested and will hopefully be released "soon".

I have the same problem in New Zealand and am assuming it is to do with Daylight Saving. The funny thing is when you print the calendar for November the events show the correct date!!

So, I was able to add all the lessons, teachers -no problem to the lesson schedule.

Then I attempted to add events for General Conferences, and Stake Conferences, but - could not.

I was able to add events before I added any of the lessons, it worked for me then -but chose not to add them until completing the lesson schedule.

After I completed the lesson schedule, went back to add events - no go...it's like I don't have rights to add events now.

The calendar developers know about this problem. It is related to daylight savings time. It appears that it is not a trivial problem to fix. You can get around the problem by not using all day events. Schedule your event from 5:00am to 11:00 pm an everything will be fine.
