Policy Title: Early Release for Seniors
Code No. 641
The academic school year for students shall be for a minimum of 1080 hours in the school calendar. Seniors may be excused up to thirty hours of instruction after they have met the district's requirements for graduation. The board may also excuse graduating seniors from making up hours due to inclement weather if the student has met the school district's graduation requirements.
The superintendent and/or designee has the authority to deny early release, or reduce the number of days for which graduating seniors may be excused, if a senior has failed to meet the requirements for graduation, as a form of discipline for an individual or for the class as a whole, or if the academic year has been disrupted by school closings for severe weather or other emergencies.
