Sedalia School District 200


P 1220 School Day

The length of the school day will meet State Department of Elementary and Secondary Education requirements for six clock hours of instruction. The length of the school day in excess of the state required minimum will be recommended by the Superintendent and approved by the Board. The specific daily opening and closing time for individual schools may vary to facilitate the scheduling of the District's transportation program.

If the District's schools are dismissed due to inclement weather after school has been in session for three or more hours, that day shall count as a full day, including kindergarten. When the total hours lost due to inclement weather exceed twelve (12) hours, the time must be made up in half- or full-day additions to the school term.
