School calendar adjusted for make-up days

Friday, February 21, 2014


Franklin County students have two days of school to make up for days missed for inclement weather.

The school division has used up the number of days built into the calendar, as well as two additional days.

"Each early close or open hurts; however, it may not be enough to cause us to take a (scheduled) vacation day," said Dr. Mark Church, school superintendent.

So far this year, eight inclement weather days have been used. Six of the missed days were covered by built-in calendar days and accumulated banked instructional time, Church said.

The following make-up days are in place, effective immediately:

•Friday, Feb. 28 and Wednesday, May 28 -- Students will attend school all day instead of being released early as previously scheduled.

•Tuesday, March 17 -- Students will attend school on what was scheduled as a teacher work day. Saturday, March 15 will be an "at-home" work day for staff.

•If an additional day is missed, students will attend school on Tuesday, April 22 to make it up.

•If yet another day is missed, students will attend school on Monday, May 26 (Memorial Day) to make it up.

April 17, 18 and 21 will also be considered for making up any additional missed days, Church said.

Students are required to attend school 180 days each year.
