This winter, cities from the Southwest to Northeast had extreme winter weather, leading school districts to cancel school due to snow or frigid temperatures. Each school district has its own plan to make-up the missed days.
Most school districts already had extra days in their school schedules or added days during the regular school calendars, making it unnecessary to extend their school years. In addition, to avoid extending the school year, some school districts have held school on Saturdays, on teacher work days, or during parts of their spring breaks.
Here is a list of the schools districts that we track that are extending their school years:
- Chicago, IL – added 3 days (June 17, 18, and 19)
- Montgomery, MD (DC area) – added 2 days (June 12 and 15)
- Louisville, KY – added 4 days (May 29 – June 5)
- Greensboro, NC – added 2 days (June 12 and 15)
- Boston, MA – added 6 days (June 22-29)
The make-up days are well distributed across the country, and we do not expect an impact on crowd levels.
Are your kids having to make-up school days? Did it affect your vacation plans?
