My kids recently got a whole week off for Mardi Gras and now they are off for another week (plus the Monday after) for Easter. So I'm starting to wonder/worry how many days they are actually in school, compare to the rest of the country. Is there some sort of federally set amount of days per year that have to be in a school calendar or can it be different for every state? And is there an easy way to find out how many school days there are in a year other than manually counting them up and calculating.it? I suppose I could just Google and try and find out but I'm mostly curious how our state compares with other states- how many days are your kids in school each year?
