Alternate Calendar
The Alternate Calendar would be utilized in the event that Akron's schools are closed for more than the required minimal education hours mandated by state law (school closing usually caused by severe weather conditions). No calamity days are waived under state law for the 2016-17 school year.

Calamity Days:

  • 1st-2nd days: make-up days are Thursday, June 8, and Friday, June 9, 2017
  • 3rd-7th days: make-up days are the week of June 12, 2017
  • 8th-12th days: make-up days are the week of April 17, 2017
  • 13th-17th days: make-up days are the week of June 19, 2017
