Summer vacation starts one week later for Benton Harbor schools


We may be heading into spring, but the Benton Harbor School District had made a decision that will affect its summer vacation.

During a special board meeting Wednesday night, administrators voted to add one week to the academic calendar.

What that means for students, their last day will now be Friday, June 6th. Graduation is also scheduled for that day.

Administrators say the district missed more than the six calamity days that the state allots.
