Davison adds a day to its school calendar

DAVISON — Davison Community Schools have exceeded the amount of snow days allowable by state law. School districts are allowed six snow/emergency days and Davison is currently at seven days.

The formula set by the Michigan Department of Education that requires the district to make up school days is based on the amount of hours and days of instruction. Davison Superintendent Eric Lieske said unfortunately, making up the time is not as simple as adding minutes to the school day.

“Keeping our “Kids First” mission in mind, we believe we have determined the best way to make up this day that will cause the most minimal disruption to family schedules and allow us to comply with state guidelines,” said Lieske, in a letter sent to parents.

The school calendar is now amended to reflect: March 29 will now be a half day for students. This day was originally scheduled as a full day off for students and a full day teacher work day. This will now be a half student day and half teacher work day.

Officials ask that all parents and students to adjust their school calendar to reflect the necessary changes. — G.G.
