West Central School Board Adds One More Day to the School Year


Local school corporations are still attempting to fit in missed days from bad weather days into this year’s school calendar.

Some school corporations are adding time to the end of the school day from now until the end of the year and others are simply adding days to the end of the calendar.

West Central School Superintendent Charles Mellon said the school board approved a motion on the additional make up day during their meeting on Thursday night.

“We have moved our final day for students to May 29 now. It was May 28,” said Mellon.

Graduation is still on the same day.

Seven days have been missed this year due to the unusually rough winter and the corporation has used a state waiver, all built in make up days and added days to the end of the year to get in the required amount of classroom instruction.
