Online make-up of Excess Calamity Days

Schools in Ohio are permitted to use five calamity days for circumstances such as hazardous weather conditions, disease epidemic, damage to school building, inoperability of buses or other equipment necessary to the school's operation, or temporary conditions making the school building unfit, such as utility failure.

To make up calamity days in excess of five, schools have the option to utilize their contingency plans or use online lessons for up to three days. To utilize the online option, schools must submit a plan to ODE on or before July 31.

For information concerning contingency plans and reporting allowable calamity days please access the Forms and Program Information for Traditional Public Schools page.
