MEDFORD, Ore. -- The Medford School District announced Saturday that the last day of the 2017-2018 school year will be Thursday, June 14.
The extended date is due to the snow day on Feb. 22.
NewsWatch 12 reached out to the other school districts across our region to find out if they are extending the school year.
The Phoenix-Talent School District is not adding another day to the end of the school year. Instead, the school district added minutes to each day left in the school year. The district’s elementary schools added more time to the beginning of the day, so school starts earlier. For the middle school and high school, minutes were added to each class period, extending each day.
The Ashland School District, Central Point School District, Rogue River School District, Butte Falls School District, Grants Pass School District, and Three Rivers School District are not adding extra school days to the end of the year.
Although the Brookings-Harbor School District did not have any snow days, schools were delayed a week at the beginning of the school year because of the Chetco Bar Fire. The district is also not adding extra school days to the end of the school year.
NewsWatch 12 is waiting on a response from the Eagle Point School District.
