Emergency school closing an important decision
The adage of closing school for a “snow day” may conjure up images of an exciting free day from the classroom to play in the snow during the winter months. However, the recent storms and related flooding caused many local school districts to close school in the midst of spring while many area children are more concerned with spring sports than building a snowman.
Most public schools in DuPage County average 174 to 175 days of attendance for students, with teachers and other school staff working additional days to accommodate training and curriculum development. The school year calendars are approved annually by the Illinois State Board of Education to ensure that the minimum number of required days for pupil attendance is met.
Each school district creates its calendar, which does not necessarily include “built-in” snow/emergency days. If a school district cancels school, it often will be required to make up the day after the originally scheduled last day of attendance.
