Standard 58 (2012 Professional Program Standards) states “Students must receive a day off in every seven-day period”. Must Standard 58 be followed in this time period prior to or extended beyond the institution’s academic calendar?

Any deviation from the Standard that occurs outside of institution’s normal academic calendar must be written within an institutional policy that has been approved by the Program Director, the Department Chair, Dean, and the institution’s legal counsel to ensure this practice does not contradict any federal and state statutes.
