Senator Addabbo sponsored S7574 Diwali bill which passed as a school holiday.

In the new 2023-2024 school calendar, it’s not there. It will be on October 20, 2024.

State mandates 180 days of teaching before losing State funding. The new sets of holidays reduced the number of days to 178.

City education department spokesperson Nathaniel Styer said the city will not violate the 180-day rule because certain days devoted to teacher training will count toward the requirement. Schools are for teachers or for students?
