The Ministry determined the actual study days as per article 40 of the Education Law No. 3 of 1994, which stipulates that the actual study days during the school year range from 195-200 days.

The amended scholastic calendar was announced after Jordanian teachers staged a strike that lasted for almost a month, where they used to go to schools and refuse to give lessons to students.
