Clarkston school board votes to extend this year’s term

Students in the Clarkston School District will have there academic year extended by 5 days following a meeting of the school board.

Officials say the extra days are needed to make up for lost instruction when the school moved from in-classroom teaching to distance learning in March amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The last day of school in the Clarkston district will now be June 17th.

In other business, the school board also approved an emergency waiver of high school graduation credits – a move designed to allow the board more flexibility to work with the district’s seniors if graduation eligibility issues related to the closure arise. (Lewiston Tribune)
