Calamity Days are a thing of the past
Growing up in Galloway, Ohio, we knew the school district allowed for five “snow days.”
Once school was cancelled after the allotted time, we also understood the school year would get longer and our summer break would shorten because we knew about “make-up days.”
That’s still an understanding most students and parents have of the system.
However, that system was left behind and in 2014 when schools were required to be in service for a minimum set of hours.
The hours can range from 455 for half-day kindergarten to 1,001 for high school students, according to the Ohio Department of Education web site.
As of this morning, all of Columbus City Schools are scheduled to finish May 30 and are on time to make that mark.
Check with your child’s school district to see if it is on schedule.
