School Days and Graduation (April 2018 School Leader Update)
With graduations fast approaching we have had quite a few phone calls regarding when schools can let out their
seniors for the school year under the days/hours rules. So here is a quick reminder of the rules for seniors.
1) Can we still let seniors out a week early?
Yes. Seniors may be released for up to 30 hours toward the
district total reported hours (minimum of 1,080 hours) or 5 days toward the 180 days.
2) What if we have extended our regular school calendar to make-up for inclement weather?
You may excuse a graduating senior who has met district or school requirements for graduation from
attendance during the extended school calendar.
For other questions on school calendar please see our guidance.
