Thursday, April 14, the Lincoln County Board of Education voted to revise the school calendar and make the last day for students May 25. This decision was in response to the provisions of HB 111, a recently passed statue which provided school districts “snow day relief.” HB 111 removed the requirement of schools being in session 170 days and instead gave districts the option of counting accumulated instructional hours as the determinant of a full instructional year.
Lincoln County students attend school for 6 1/2 hours every day. This added instruction enables the district to “bank” additional time. As a result, the revised calendar of 164 days equals 1,066 instructional hours, exceeding the state requirement of 1, 062.
