Buncombe Co. Schools Makeup Days
Updated: Thursday, March 14 2013, 06:44 PM EDT
Buncombe County Schools has re-scheduled the three days lost due to inclement weather so far in the 2012-13 school year for April 26, June 3rd and 4th.
Two days will be added to the end of the current calendar, so instead of ending school on Monday June 3rd, the last day of school will now be Wednesday, June 5th. The 5th will be a half-day, as previously planned for the last day of school.
The 3rd inclement weather makeup day will be Friday, April 26, previously scheduled to be an optional teacher workday. The optional teacher workday will move to Memorial Day Monday, May 27.
Two years ago over 9,000 BCS parents responded to a survey requesting opinions about scheduling makeup days. The overwhelming choice of parents was for days to be made up at the end of the year so long as the year did not extend past June 10th, the date by which all school systems in NC without a waiver must end school for the year.
