For more information, contact the NDE Service Desk – ADVISERHelp@nebraskacloud.org

Days in Session/Instructional Program Hours
This collection consists of 2 different reports: Days in Session and Instructional Program Hours.
Days in Session is the actual number of days school is open with teachers and students, not what was originally planned. For Special Purpose schools, this information is collected through ADVISER. As such, Special Purpose schools do not need to complete this portion of this CDC collection.
Instructional Program Hours are the actual instructional program hours in session (not just scheduled) for the school year. All Special Purpose schools must complete this section of the collection. For the 2021-2022 school year, please use the Commissioner’s Guidance concerning Instructional Hours for Rules 10, 11 and 14 found here: https://www.launchne.com/commish/
For information on Instructional Program Hours, contact Micki Charf – micki.charf@nebraska.gov
