1062 hours and 170 days of instruction are required by state law. Before the Hardin County Board of Education Meeting on March 16, 2023, the last scheduled day for students was Wednesday, May 31, at which time Hardin County Schools will have exceeded the 1062 hours and 170 days of instruction threshold.
At the meeting, the Board amended the 2022-23 school calendar to 171 days of instruction. This will allow our high schools to have graduation ceremonies in which seniors will receive their diplomas without having to return to school. Seniors cannot receive a diploma until the school year has officially ended. By amending the calendar to 171 days, the disruption to the end of the school year will be minimal.
