Additional notes:
For the primary schools can the municipality decide individually the school holidays, as the counties can decide for the upper secondary schools.
The teachers’ work during the school year is counted in working hours. That is 1 300 hours for primary education (ISCED 1), 1 225 hours for lower secondary education (ISCED 2) and 1 150 hours for upper
secondary education. It is an individual matter for each school if the work hours, longer than for the students,
are before the beginning or after the end of the school year.
