Board Approves 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 Academic Calendars (No Need to Makeup Days (Yet) this Year)

The London City School District Board of Education approved District Academic Calendars for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school years at its regular March 2018 meeting. While the calendars remain relatively similar to year’s past, perhaps the biggest change is in the method of makeup day. LCS will continue to provide a buffer of five (5) instructional days prior to scheduling an makeup work. Beginning next school year, however, the district will utilize “E-Days” to makeup work if school is cancelled for a 6th, 7th, and/or 8th day. 


An E-Day is a term used to refer to how a school district can make up a lost day of instruction using online resources. With London now employing technology on such a wide scale (i.e. 1:1 for all students 6-12, a blended learning program in London Unlimited, and the expanded use of Google Classroom across the district) the strategy to use E-Days will help students and teachers integrate technology resources more effectively.


If the district cancels school for the 6th, 7th, or 8th day in future years, teachers will upload assessments to the district’s web portal. Students will be given a two week window to complete and turn in all assigned work. In the case of an E-Day completed student assignments not only county as part of a student’s course grade but also as credit for attendance on a missed day. More information on E-Days will be posted at the beginning of next school year. Any instructional days missed beyond eight (8) days in coming school years will still be made up by adding school days to the school year. 


So far, the district has used all of its calamity days for the current school year. If the district were to miss additional days, they would be added at the end of the academic year.
