When I need scripts like this I go to (I am not
affiliated in any way nor do I have any scripts our there).  They have
over 100 PHP based calendar programs out there.  Most require MySQL
too but I am sure there are some that don't.  Surf around and you will
find there are non-PHP calendars too that may meet your needs.

I like the site because the visitor ratings are usually right on,
there are often live demos, and it is a mix of free and commercial
offerings.  Check out their PHP calendar listings at the link below.

Thanks for the help. I took a look at the scripts and I am having a
hard time understanding them. I think my best bet is to take a class
or get a good book on php. Thanks!

I have set up a few clients with this already.  They set up their own
schedules like a calendar function online on the web.  They select the
option to publish their changes, and the website with their calendar
reflects those changes.
These sites provide a URL to plug into your own website if necessary.

Have you considered using Google Calendars?  They now offer sharing
calendars with others.
