Howard schools won't make up days

State waives requirement for bad-weather absences

March 11, 2000

Howard County schools Superintendent Michael E. Hickey announced yesterday that state Superintendent Nancy S. Grasmick has approved the district's request for a waiver of four school days because of inclement weather.

The state school board gave Grasmick the authority to grant waivers of the mandatory 180-day school year to local school systems as a result of severe weather on Sept. 16 and 17 and on Jan. 25 and 26.

Based on this waiver, the last school day for all Howard County public school students will be Friday, June 16.
