Subject: School Term
The Kansas Legislature authorized unified school district boards of education
to adopt a 1,116-hour school term in lieu of (186) six-hour days (K.S.A 72-1106).
Section 1 of this law states, "Each board of education which develops and adopts
a policy providing for a school term in accordance with this provision (2) shall
notify the State Board of Education thereof on or before September 15 in each school
year which the policy is to be in effect."
Please indicate the school term plan that your board of education has
adopted for the
school year by completing the online form no later than September 11,
We would appreciate your responding even though you may have already
notified this office, by letter or resolution, of your
school year plan.
