Make-up Day for Closures
Students are required by law to attend 180 days of school, per the Indiana Department of Education. When the decision to close school is made, the school day must be made up using a previously scheduled “make-up day” or added to the end of the school year. The State Board of Education has allowed Elkhart Community Schools to have the 6 eLearning days above, but state law limits us to only 3 other days beyond those. When possible, Elkhart Community Schools will use an “eLearning day” to make up a missed day of school. In the event an eLearning day cannot be utilized for a closure during the school year or the district goes beyond 3 eLearning days due to weather, school will be in session on May 26, 2023.
