New York City’s long and winding school year ends on a full day for most students

From Chalkbeat:

The year is ending the way it started: with confusion.

Friday marks the end of this year’s wild ride of a school year for the nation’s largest system, and unlike previous years, it will be a “full” day of school, rather than a half day, education department officials confirmed this week.

Several educators and families were caught off guard that it would not be a half day as in years past, only learning this week of the schedule. The official school calendar did not say “early dismissal” as it typically does.

Many schools, however, may be doing their own thing despite the official schedule. Some parents said their schools were doing a half day regardless. Others said their schools were giving families the option to pull their children early on the last day.
