Wake County announces new makeup days for March 18 snow day – News & Observer

Posted: Thursday, March 20, 2014

CORRECTED TO REMOVE THAT TRACK 1 HAS A MAKEUP DAY SCHEDULED FOR MARCH 22.

The Wake County school system has announced when students will make up Tuesday’s, March 18, snow day.

Traditional-calendar students will see their school year extended again by one more day to June 13 – the last day allowed under the state’s calendar law. The original last day was June 10, but this winter’s snow days have resulted in time being tacked on at the end of the school year.

Wake chose not to cut into spring break, as shown by the school district’s tweet today that “spring break is safe.”

For year-round schools, Wake has announced when students will make up Tuesday and how they’ll make up the March 8 makeup day that was canceled because of the poor road conditions.

Students on tracks 2 and 4 at the multi-track year-round schools and the single-track year-round schools will have classes this Saturday, March 22, to make up Tuesday.

Students on tracks 1 and 4 will also have classes next Saturday, March 29, to replace March 8.

The amount of makeup time varies among year-round students because Wake says some tracks are in a better position than others to meet the state’s minimum of 1,025 hours of instruction annually.

The early colleges and single-sex leadership academies will make up Tuesday on June 2.

Modified-calendar schools are on spring break this week so they don’t need to make up Tuesday.
