No additional school days for Douglas students
March 25, 2017
Douglas County students in the valley and up the hill missed several days of school over the winter, but no additional days will be tacked on to the end of the school year, the district announced Wednesday.
Valley students missed three days of school and Lake Tahoe students missed five days.
The district has three contingency days built into its annual calendar to allow for weather cancellations. In addition, the district plans its school days with extra instructional minutes built in. Douglas' middle and high school schedules exceed 330 minutes per day and its elementary schools exceed 300 minutes per day, surpassing the state's requirements.
The last day of school for valley elementary schools is June 8; the last day for valley middle and high schools is June 7; the last day of school for Zephyr Cove Elementary is June 22; and the last day of school for George Whittell High School is June 27.
