1 canceled day = 182 student days

2 canceled days = 181 student days

3 canceled days = 180 student days

If there are more than 3 canceled days, bringing the student days below 180 days, then for each day under 180 days not waived by the Department of Education, a student day will be added to the school year, but not later than June 30, 2002. Voted by the School Committee on May 29, 2001.
