Latvia not to extend school year into summer 2022

May 16, 2022

Original Article:

In the description of the draft law, it was noted that the autumn holidays in 2021/2022. the school year were extended by one week, thus the duration of the school year for grades 1 to 12 was reduced by one week.

Taking into account that pupils are tired of distance learning, a result of measures to reduce the rapid spread of Covid-19, a prolonged school year could further degrade their emotional well-being, the government explained.

Consequently, it was decided not to extend the school year and as a result the 2021/2022 school year for grades 1 to 8 and 10 to 11s will end as usual, i.e., on May 31.

As to pupils in the final exam classes, the school year will end on June 14 for grade 9 students and on June 21 for grade 12 students after taking their state examinations according to a set schedule.
