The Sevier County Board of Education recognizes that families may request a vacation during the school year. Parents should make such requests directly to the school principal. The Board allows the principal to approve one family vacation per year for a student for up to five days. If more than five days are requested, the principal will refer the request to the Central Office with a recommendation for approval. If any request is not approved, the parents may appeal the decision to the Superintendent's hearing officer. Please refer to Board Policy 621 for more information.
