Full list: Academic school year extended for many districts due to weather closures

MADISON (WKOW) — The end of the school year is almost here, but it will be longer than normal for many in southern Wisconsin.

Wild weather, including historic flooding, big snow storms and record cold, forced officials to cancel school more than usual this year.

Some districts were able to satisfy the state’s required minimum academic instruction time by only using back up days built into the original calendar.

However, many districts quickly burned through these days and still had more time to make up; so administrators had to get creative.

The first step was changing teacher in-service days to normal school days. If that wasn’t enough, officials made vacation/shortened days into teaching days.

Multiple districts, including Madison, added several minutes to the beginning and/or end of each day, while others shortened lunch and recess.

A few districts, like Dodgeland, Shullsburg and Wonewoc-Union, even took days out of spring break. And Wauzeka-Steuben removed theirs completely, after asking for parents’ input.

If there was still extra time to make up, then the district extended the academic calendar year.

Here’s a full list of when all 100 school districts across southern Wisconsin get out of school. These dates are specifically when high schools are released; check with your school district for additional information.
