A school district may need to delay school or cancel a day or several days of school during its scheduled testing window, due to weather or other unexpected circumstances. This guidance addresses the extension of a district’s testing window only under these circumstances. A district cannot use a testing window extension for a school delay or closure that occurred before testing started.
