Bibb school district seeking input on when students should make up snow days | News
The Bibb County School District has released surveys for teachers & staff, parents, and students to weigh in on when to make up the classes missed during this week's snow days, and for two days missed earlier this month.
Classes in Bibb County were out Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, as well as on January 6th & 7th.
By state law, the county must make up some of those days. Interim Superintendent Steve Smith is asking everyone affected to pick an option, out of five, for when to make up that lost time.
In a news release from the Bibb County School District, the options are:
Option 1: Take two days from Winter Break, which is scheduled for February 17-21, to use as make-up days.
Option 2: Take two days from Spring Break, which is scheduled for March 31-April 4, to use as make-up
Option 3: Use the furlough day on March 17 as one make-up day for staff and students, and extend the
school day by 30 minutes March 17-April 11 to make up the additional day. The additional 30 minutes
during those 3 weeks of school would be used for test preparation for the CRCT, EOCT and AP exams,
and academic enrichment. Remember, Spring Break is scheduled for March 31-April 4.
Option 4: Extend the school year by two days. The current academic calendar has students attending
school through May 23, and 190-day employees working May 27 with 2 furlough days on May 28-29.
Under Option 4, students would also go to school on May 27-28. Employees on a 190-contract would
then work May 27-29, with 2 furlough days on May 30 and June 2.
Option 5: Have school on two Saturdays, which would be sometime in March and/or April.
