The Ottawa Hills school district is awaiting approval from the Ohio Department of Education for two waiver days during the 2012-2013 school year.
According to the district's Web site, waiver days are used for focused professional development. They are considered student days, yet students do not report to school.
The district would like the waiver days to be Aug. 28 and Feb. 15, 2013. If the former is approved, the first day of school for students would be Aug. 29, instead of the regularly scheduled Aug. 28.
Once the Ohio Department of Education responds to the district, the waiver days, if approved, will be posted on the district's Web site.
