Plan determined for missed instructional days
Published: Thu Feb 20 2014 00:00:00 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time)
The Fulton County School Board has approved a plan for making up the instructional time missed due to the recent inclement weather days.
The plan includes changing March 14 from a teacher workday to an instructional day. In addition, the CRCT testing window for elementary and middle school students is being pushed back four days, giving students and teachers five additional days to prepare. The testing window now begins April 22.
District leaders also are exploring ways for schools to provide students with additional academic support after school hours. Digital resources aligned to the curriculum are also being developed for students.
“We looked to our school leaders, parents and community for their input on how to make up the missed days,” said Superintendent Avossa. “We know that our schools’ instructional needs are very diverse, and that a one-size-fits-all approach wasn’t the best option. Some students are doing just fine with the missed days while others might need extra assistance to get back on track, especially those scheduled for Advanced Placement and End-of-Course exams.”
The rest of the school year calendar is unaffected. Spring break remains on schedule for April 7-11 and the last day of school will be May 23. High school graduation dates are not impacted.
