Graduation - Reminders on school days (April 2017 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.
- Can we still let seniors out a week early? Yes. Seniors may be released for up to 30 hours toward the 1,080 hours or five days toward the 180 days.
- 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.
