School to End Two Days Earlier than Calendar Says?

The Fairfax County School Board is expected to vote to shorten the academic year calendar by two days at its meeting tonight, meaning classes at most schools would end Friday June 13 rather than Tuesday June 17. Today's Metro section has the news story which explains that officials say that because of the dearth of weather-related closures this year, students will have completed the required 180 days of instruction by the 13th and that the two days could be used by teachers for year-end housekeeping and planning for next year.
