ALTOONA, Wis. (WEAU) -- After changing the last scheduled day of class earlier in the school year, the Altoona School District has now moved it back to the original date.
This week, the board in the School District of Altoona decided to move the last day of class for the school year to June 11. That's the day it was originally scheduled. In March, Superintendent Connie Biedron sent a letter to parents in the district moving the date to June 13 because of inclement weather during the winter. Recently, Governor Scott Walker signed a bill into law that eliminated a requirement that districts have to keep class in session for 180 days. It went into effect immediately. That let Altoona and other districts re-evaluate when their last day of class will be. June 11 will be a full day of school in Altoona. Biedron says she trusts that parents in the district will be happy with the decision.
The last day of school in the Eau Claire Area School District is June 12. It was originally June 10, but that district also had days to make up because of inclement weather.
