Employee Handbook 2021-2022


4.5 Emergency School Closures

Should it become necessary to close or delay the opening of school due to inclement weather, power failures or other circumstances, notice shall be delivered prior to 6:30 a.m. over radio stations whose broadcast studios are located within the city limits of the City of Madison. Teachers shall be compensated for such day in their regular monthly payroll check. However, if it is necessary to extend the school year to enable the District to qualify for state aid, because of school being closed due to inclement weather, power failure or other circumstances, the District will increase the length of the remaining school days and/or increase the number of school days as is necessary to meet state standards on the days and hours of instruction.
