Students and employees of Bulloch County Schools will not have to make up the two days missed as a result of Hurricane Ian.
Superintendent Charles Wilson made the announcement after speaking with his leadership team. Faculty are confident that they can recapture any lost learning throughout the remainder of the semester.
The school district closed schools on September 29-30 for all students and employees. This was due to the latest National Weather Service reports which at the time predicted the possibility of tropical storm-force winds in Bulloch County. This would have prevented safe road travel, especially for school buses.
Bulloch County Schools has four make-up days included in its 2022-2023 school calendar, two in each semester. When the district believes lost classroom instruction time cannot be made up within regularly scheduled class days, the superintendent can make the decision to activate one or more weather days. The days for this year are October 17-18 and April 3-4. State Board of Education policy allows school systems to cancel up to four instructional days without scheduling make-up days.
