The Bossier Parish School Board shall require every school under its jurisdiction to conduct a minimum daily session of not less than 360 minutes of instructional time, exclusive of all recesses, provided that this shall not be construed as to prevent half-day sessions where the school accommodations are insufficient for all students of the system in a whole day session. Two (2) or more partial days may be combined to meet the minimum required instructional time. The class schedule shall be altered to assure all classes are conducted during partial days.
The school day shall include, by definition, the daily period of time established by the School Board as the official operating hours of the school for administrative and instructional purposes, as well as co-curricular activities.
