Prince George’s Co. education board extends school year

WASHINGTON — The last day of school in Prince George’s County, Maryland, has been moved back three days.

The Board of Education voted to extend the school year on Tuesday night to make up for school days lost to winter weather, the school system said in a statement. The last day of school will be Wednesday, June 20.

The state mandates that the school year end June 15, but a recently passed emergency state law allows school districts to add up to five days to make up for days lost to bad weather.

The school system said classes will let out two hours early on June 19 and June 20.
