Updated End of School Date Information

The Indiana Department of Education released information about a waiver process to reduce the number of make-up days for schools. This addresses concerns for schools that have missed a significant number of days this year due to weather. Essentially, it requires schools to make up the first five days missed, then schools may waive every other day.

Blackford County Schools has applied for and been granted the waiver. We have missed nine days so far this year. This means day seven and day nine would not need to be made up for students. As of today, the last day of school is now on May 30.

Due to the fact that it is the first week of February and more weather issues may arise, this may change. We will share all updates via the district website and social media.
