D.C. schools get waiver for two snow days
WASHINGTON (WJLA) - D.C. Public Schools has been granted a waiver for the two days of school lost due to weather last month.
According to the district's website, officials applied for a waiver of the 180-day minimum from the state superintendent of schools after missing March 3 and March 24 due to snow days. Those two dates went over its maximum number of snow days it built into the calendar for this year.
The waiver has reportedly been granted, and the district will not have to make up those two days.
Barring any further loss of instructional days this year, the school year will end on June 20 as planned.
June 20 is scheduled to be a full day of school.
