Snow Day Make-up Plan In RSU 22
RSU 22 has exceeded the number of snow days allotted in our district calendar by two days. Hampden Academy seniors are currently going to attain 169 days of attendance (presuming there are no additional snow days) but are required to attend 170 days to graduate on June 9th. The district must address this senior-specific issue and also add days for all additional attending pupils to meet the 175 day requirement. Maine Statute: School Days Title 20-A Chapter 209
A decision has been made to make up one of the snow days by extending our school day for an additional hour per day for five days the week of April 1st-5th. Each school in RSU #22 will develop a plan to implement a constructive additional hour of school instruction and relevant activities each of the five days. Principals will be communicating with families regarding specific details of these plans.
As of March 13th and presuming no additional snow days occur, the final 2018-19 student day will be Friday June 14th.
