Makeup for Snow Days

GCS Banner

RE:  Makeup Days for Greenville County Schools

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(2/26/2014) 10:30 AM

Contact:  Oby G. Lyles, Director of Communications, 355-8871

olyles@greenville.k12.sc.us

GREENVILLE, S.C.  --- Students attending Greenville County public schools will make up three missed school days per the school system’s calendar on Friday, March 7, Monday, March 10, and Friday, June 6, based on State law that requires school districts to schedule three makeup days.  Students attending Greenville County Schools have missed six days this school year due to inclement weather.

State law also specifies that missed days beyond the three scheduled days must be made up by scheduling additional makeup days including Saturdays and/or extending school days.  The school district’s plan for missed days beyond the three scheduled makeup days is on hold as the Legislature considers a bill that would provide local school boards with authority to forgive up to five school days beyond the three scheduled makeup days.  Once final legislation is approved, the administration will consider the impact of and date options for additional makeup days in making a recommendation to the Board of Trustees.
