The Jackson County Public School’s Calendar Committee met last week and made several decisions that will be recommendations to the Jackson County Board of Education. First, March 21st had been a flexible professional development day for teachers, but will now be a school day for students to make up one snow day. Second, all of the Spring Break days in the original calendar (March 31st-April 11th) will now be instructional days. Third, the decision was made to pursue ten disaster days if offered by the legislature and the Commissioner of Education. Several steps remain before these ten days are definite. This includes the completion of a process by the state legislature, the submission of a request to be granted the ten days to the commissioner of education, and the granting of the days by the commissioner. Currently, the last day of school for students is June 23rd. If the ten days are secured, the last day for students will then be June 9th. The school system will let the community know as soon as the ten days are secured. Missing more days for weather-related issues would add more instructional days to the end of the calendar. Every day that was missed was to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
