Make-up days scheduled for some Dayton schools

06/07/2010

 

 


Wind and snow storms lengthened school year for students in six building.

June 10 is the last day of school for most DPS students this year—but not all students.  Wind and snow storms took a toll during the 2008-2009 school year, and five schools must extend the year to make up days missed in excess of the five calamity days allowed by the state.

Louise Troy PK-7 School used two days over the allotted number and will be in session June 11 and June 12.

Orville Wright PK-6 School, Horace Mann PK-7 School, Kiser PK-8 School and Stivers School for the Arts used three calamity days over the allotted number and will hold classes June 11, 12 and 15.

The damage from September’s windstorm had a greater impact in some areas of the school district than others, resulting in a larger number of calamity days for schools most affected.  

All other DPS schools used five days during the school year.

The Dayton Board of Education establishes dates to be used as make-up days at the beginning of each school year, in the event that they are needed.

Note correction: World of Wonder has NO days to make up. The last day of school for students at World of Wonder is June 10.
