MCPS Extends School Year By One Day

April 19, 2016

Montgomery County Public Schools announced Tuesday that the district will extend the 2015–2016 school year by one day and end the year on Monday, June 20. The MCPS request for a one-day waiver of the 180-day school year requirement was approved Monday by the Maryland State Department of Education.

   The school year was previously scheduled to end Friday, June 17, and now will end with an early release day on June 20.

   MCPS was closed for six days this winter due to inclement weather, all due to the Blizzard of ’16 which dumped more than 30-inches of snow on Montgomery County and left many roads and sidewalks in the county impassable for almost a week. MCPS already had four emergency weather days built into the school calendar. With the state waiving one day from the requirement, MCPS has implemented its weather contingency calendar, which adds one make-up day to the end of the school year.

   MCPS initially requested that Maryland State Department of Education waive two days so that the school year could end June 17, 2016. The Department of Education rejected that request.
