Instructional Time (Days in School) vs. Emergency Closures
I know that there are a lot of questions pertaining to state requirements for how many days we have school and what happens when we have snow days or other emergency closures. I will do my best to explain this process and hope it helps alleviate any anxiety or concern.
There is no requirement on how many days that districts must hold classes. The only requirement dictates how many hours of instruction per year we provide to students, and this varies based on the grade level. Districts are allowed to create a school calendar as they see fit as long as they can verify the following minimum requirements are met.
