This year’s winter weather has resulted in the most school closures in West Ada’s history.
The possibility of such a series of events is addressed in the school district’s policy number 601.20 titled Adverse Conditions and Emergency Closures. While the state allows time for emergency closures in Idaho Code 33-512, if schools exceed the amount of time allowed, this policy addresses how additional days will be made up:
“A third day of emergency closure prior to January 10 will be made up by holding school on Martin Luther King holiday:
To make up the educational time lost after the third closure, school will be in session on Monday, January 16, 2017.
High schools will operate on a B day on January 16.
