School system makes calendar adjustments for snow days

At its meeting last night, the Pulaski County School Board voted to change from the 180 instructional day calendar to a 990 instructional hours calendar.

This means that the school system currently has to make up three additional school days instead of eight, since March 16 had already been converted to an instructional day.

As a result, the following calendar changes were approved in order for the school system to make up the hours that have been missed due to delays and cancellations:

*Thursday, May 24 will now be a full instructional day.
*Friday, May 25 will now be a full instructional day.
*Tuesday, May 29 will now be a full instructional day.
*Wednesday, May 30 will now be a 2 hour early release instructional day
*Thursday, May 31 and Friday, June 1 will now be teacher work days.
Here are a few other important points to note:

  1. There will be no changes to spring break.
    2. The SOL testing schedule will be pushed back in order to ensure more instructional time prior to testing.
    3. PCHS graduation will remain on Friday, May 25, 2018.
    4. Additional instructional time or days will need to be added to the school calendar if there are more school delays or cancellations.
