NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The New Hanover County School Board approved a new plan for school make-up days. For the month of March, students will attend school for an additional 30 minutes.
The board is adding an additional 15 minutes to the beginning of the day and 15 minutes to the end of the day.
The last school day will now be June 13, 2014 and there will be no school Saturday February 22, 2014. No time will be taken from Spring Break either.
"It really works out well. It's enough time to be significant, yet it doesn't impact us financially that you have to open up another day, all the expenses associated and so forth. So I think it's a good solution," said Don Hayes, Chairman of the New Hanover County Board of Education.
Here's the official press release from NHCS:
For traditional schools and Eaton Elementary school calendars (Codington Elementary will be an exception since they were closed an additional day to serve as an emergency shelter):
Early College calendars will be adjusted as needed in accordance to their college affiliation.
