The upcoming Crawford County school year will be slashed by 20 days because of state budget cuts.

The school system said in a release that it sent an automated phone notice to residents Thursday alerting them to the change.

It read in part: “The school calendar has changed as of today. In response to extreme state funding cuts, the Crawford County Board of Education approved a 160 day student calendar. Teachers will return on Aug. 27. Students will return on Tuesday, Sept. 3. Open House will be Thursday, Aug. 29 from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m.”
