Proposed Academic Calendars 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 Information
Students, staff, and members of the community are invited to preview the draft academic calendar for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school years. The attached calendars shows important dates such as the beginning and ending dates of instruction, scheduled holiday breaks, and the end of each marking period. Calamity days (“snow days”) are now calculated based upon hours of instruction beyond the state minimum. The minimum hours per school year in Ohio is 1001 hours for grades 7-12 and 910 hours for grades K-6.
The length of the school day in our schools is well beyond the required minimums; therefore the Maple Heights City School District may be cancelled for calamity days if necessary by more than 15 days at all school buildings without adding additional make-up days to the calendar.
The length of the school day in our schools is 410 minutes at high school, 405 minutes at middle school, and 400 minutes at the elementary level. Because the Maple Heights City School District exceeds the state minimum hours by the equivalent of several days at every grade level, school may be canceled for calamity days if necessary by up to 9.4 days at high school, 16 days at middle school, and 9.4 days at the elementary level without adding additional make-up days to the calendar.
If you wish to provide feedback on these draft calendars, you may contact Mr. Frank Major at 216-587-6100, ext. 3500 and/or attend the public hearing on the academic calendars scheduled for February 26, 2018, 5:30 p.m. at the Board of Education.
