How Many Hours are in a School Year?

Answer

The number of hours in a school year vary from state to state. The average is about 180 days a year, with six hours of instruction each day, totaling 1080 hours per year of instruction time. For teachers and administrators, however, the work hours are longer than the instruction time, and include teacher work days and meetings, not to mention that teachers routinely take home hours' worth of homework to grade. It's funny how teachers, scheduled to work about 35 hours a week, typically end up devoting at least 50 hours a week to their jobs. And don't forget the summers, when teachers are required to take continuing education and enrichment classes!
